When you want to say you are important to me, I care about your health, I can't think of a more thoughtful way than sharing a gift of fresh organic citrus this holiday season with family, friends or employees. 

Last year, I discovered the amazing difference of South Tex Organics and their huge, sugary Rio Star grapefruits and juicy Marrs oranges.  This year, I am pleased to be working with them again with a review and giveaway of another large combo box  (#303) of 15 of the best tasting USDA certified organic grapefruit and 24 of their succulent oranges for another holiday review and giveaway.

I love South Tex Organics for quite a few reasons.  Their added concern for the health of the consumer is apparent since they grow their citrus naturally without the use of any pesticides, sprays, herbicides, and synthetic fertilizers.  Those methods can steal vitamin content and flavor from the citrus.  Research backs up that claim that organically grown produce has higher levels of vitamins than the conventional variety as well.

Buying decent looking citrus in my area can be challenging.  What I see in my  local grocery stores may be advertised as oranges or grapefruits but are hardly decent specimens worthy of consuming--at least in my opinion.  However, the large combo box from South Tex Organics was packaged with tender loving care and loaded with large appealing citrus and plenty of paper straw to ensure it stayed in excellent condition.  Furthermore, their citrus keeps a lot longer than what you may be used to if you ask me.

As to the taste, I can't begin to describe how delicious and extra sweet both the Marrs oranges or their Rio Star grapefruits are.  These beauties are so juicy and not dry in the least and bursting with incredible flavor.  Another thing I want to point out to other grapefruit fans is you can skip adding sugar to these.  Trust me, but it is not necessary.

Here's something else to be excited about is that you can use this chemical-free citrus peel for even more delicious ways in recipes like my yummy orange cake with orange creamy icing that I will be sharing with you shortly.  By the way, the USDA lists on their site that you get even more vitamin C from the peel than the orange besides calcium, potassium, and other minerals and vitamins like lots of B-6 so do grate and take advantage of yet another fantastic use.  

For those on your holiday shopping list that you have no idea what they want, you can't go wrong by giving them a South Tex Organics citrus box.  They come in all sizes and prices starting from $22 and up with combos of both grapefruit and orange or just one type.  Check here to order a box from their website.

*Disclaimer:  This is my own honest opinion.  A free product was provided to facilitate this review.*

Thanks to South Tex Organics, one lucky Nuts 4 Stuff reader in the United States wins a combo box like I received of 15 grapefruits and 24 oranges ($52 value)!
