Oranges

Organic produce

  • Kishu mandarins — Seedless and smaller than a golf ball, these mandarins are easy to peel, tender, juicy, fragrant and sweet.
  • Marmalade Seville oranges (aka Chinese Bitter Orange) — A hybrid between a pommelo and a mandarin with a thick peel, distinctive bitter taste and many seeds. Very juicy but sour, these oranges are prized for marmalades, compotes and orange-flavored liquors.
