Fruit baskets used to be the gift you sent only to business associates or distant relatives "who had everything." But the rise in delicious new varieties that are available nationally has made fruit baskets a welcome gift for your own family. Citrus fruits keep well and are excellent for filling in the corners of Christmas stockings. Everyone in the family will enjoy the refreshing light flavor of Florida oranges and grapefruit and their varieties they're a marvelous accompaniment to all those heavy foods we consume during the holidays. The Florida glamor fruits are varieties of the oranges and grapefruit you usually see in the market. When buying citrus fruits, choose those which are heavy for their size and whose skin is firm and unblemished. Here are a few which are available now that you might want to include in a gift basket: Tangelo A rare and unusual fruit; a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. In general tangelo trees produce fruits about the size of a common sweet orange, which exhibits a tendency to be slightly drawn out at the stem end. They are usually highly colored, aromatic, richly flavored and very juicy. The rind is thin, smooth or slightly bumpy, and comparatively loose and easily removable like that of the mandarin orange. Available: November-February. Murcott This is more frequently known as the "Honey Orange." It is closely related to the tangerine and, like the tangerine, peels and sections easily. It is pale orange in color and slightly larger than the tangerine. Available: February-June. Burgundy Grapefruit This is the newest variety of Florida grapefruit. It is especially flavorful and requires little or no sugar for fresh and luscious eating. The burgundy has a pronounced red blush on the outer skin. Its flesh and juice are deep pink and sweet. Available: November June. Calamondin This tiny fruit came to Florida via the Philippines. It is a small orange and is slightly tart. Like the tangerine it is loose-skinned. Available: December-February. Kumquat The Florida kumquat, originally a product of China, is about the size of a large plum. It is used in making preserves and pickles, and is also popular for salads and candied fruit assortments. Available: December-January. 3 wMemm mid EMzSts QrysisM Add some sweet surprises to this year's holidav table with "Sweet HolidaySecrets" booklet. So read on and make our secrets, your secrets.
