Our History

 

In the early 1900's, T.W. Davidson grew oranges, grapefruit, and tangerines near Dundee, Florida. In later years his son, Glen, planted his own groves nearby in the 1960's. As a youngster, Glen enjoyed a confection that his mother made from delicious citrus juices and sugar cane from the Florida Everglades. Later, while working with fresh citrus juices, a delightful citrus candy was developed. Its unique flavor and texture was enjoyed by many friends of Glen and his wife, Lois. Word soon spread about the savory treat, and people from all over began asking for a taste of Florida citrus candy.

Today Glen's son, Tom Davidson, runs the family business and loves giving the old-fashioned citrus candies, jellies, marmalades and chocolates a delicious twist with new flavors such as: Fuzzy Navel, Florida Hurricane, Sunset Jelly and Margarita. All while keeping our original and beloved flavors including Orange, Honeybell, Tangerine, Key Lime and Orange-Pineapple-Cherry.
