FLORIDA GIFT FRUIT SHIPPERS NOW HAVE TOLL FREE NUMBER

 LAKELAND, Fla., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Winter may have its icy grip on much of the nation, but a free phone call now makes it quick and easy to send the taste of Florida sunshine throughout the United States.
 By dialing 800-934-1188, people anywhere in the country can order a free full-color catalogue of fresh, tree-ripened oranges, grapefruit, tangerines and tangelos from Florida's gift fruit shippers, said William P. Gordon of the Florida Department of Citrus. The toll-free number, an industry first, was activated today.
 "Convenience", said Gordon. "Wetance or weather, a gift of Florida sunshine is ideal."
 Florida's licensed gift fruit shippers guarantee that shipments in the continental United States or Canada will arrive on time and in excellent condition. "The shipper usually gets the fruit to the recipient in four to six days," Gordon said.
 Florida gift fruit comes in a variety of package sizes and arrangements, ranging from a simple box of oranges to woven baskets containing a mix of citrus varieties, as well as jellies, candy and other specialty items.
