I thought I remembered hearing that the orange harvest wasn't the greatest in Florida this year, and that usually means that not a lot of Honeybells make it out of the state except through fruit shippers.

They are called "Sugar Belles", and are sold under the "Tradition" brand. Sweet, juicy, and with a really good "orange" flavor. I haven't found a lot of oranges with all three since I moved away from Florida.

It's a cross between a Clementine and a Minneola - here's more info:
