In Season | Available Now | Best Flavor

 In New Item

When we think about the transition from winter to spring, a time when more sunshine begins to stick around, we think about citrus. Particularly in late-winter, you will find an abundance of citrus varieties at their peak season like tangerines, grapefruits, clementines, oranges, specialty lemons and limes and many more.

This week, we are excited to feature more new varieties of California citruses like Bergamot Sour Oranges, Seville Oranges, and Sumo Mandarins.


Seville Oranges

It is sour, tart and sometime bitter. The thick peel contains fragrant essential oils and its flesh, when ripe is extremely juicy, which makes it an ideal marmalade because of their wonderful strong orange taste.

Bergamot Sour Oranges
Available by 18# case and/or sold by the pound.

When cut open, they’re surprisingly juicy and the flavor is much sweeter than a regular lemon. Its flesh is very fragrant, acidic, bitter and tart making it unsuitable for raw eating. A common and popular way is by adding a few slices of bergamot into the Earl Grey tea to enhance the flavor profile. Other commonly used methods are either infusing and baking.
