THank You For Your Support!

In early March, you will see Harvard Lions around town holding their 29th annual Citrus Fruit Sale featuring sweet Valencia oranges (perfect for delicious Vitamin C juice or sliced healthful snacks) and Royal Ruby Red grapefruit (with a flavor reminiscent of refreshing red grapes and sweet nectarines). The fruit is shipped direct from Florida and picked just a few days before delivery to Harvard. Once here it is maintained at Carlson Orchards' refrigerated lockers so that it remains fresh.

Grapefruit is available in 20 lb boxes for $30. (Oranges and mixed boxes are sold out.) The fruit is available ONLY online, due to the town closing public places.


To order and pay online, enter your address, and we will deliver for free (in Harvard and adjacent towns of Ayer, Bolton, Boxborough, Devens, Lancaster, Littleton, Shirley and Stow only) on Saturday March 7th. Any orders received after March 7 will be delivered to your home within 24 hours. No need to be home for delivery. 

  • If you would like to consider donating a box to Loaves and Fishes, you can also purchase here and we will deliver them to Loaves and Fishes on your behalf.


As with all Harvard Lion fund raising events, 100% of the proceeds are used to benefit the many charities and community programs we support.

If you need additional information or if you will be out of town during this period and want to order your fruit ahead of time, please email Joanne Helhowski at
