We can hardly believe that spring is almost here and we’re saying goodbye to another winter of great citrus. While the fruit trees are hard at work getting ready for next season, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you for making it a great season. The 2021-22 citrus season was beyond our expectations in terms of quality and taste and we hope you were able to enjoy all the different varieties with us. While we love them all equally, we’re giving some more love than others and feel the need to give out some awards!
(The Citziees) Citrus Award Show
Best in taste: The California Navels. A newcomer, and exactly how an orange should taste.
Juiciest: Honeybells were so juicy you could practically stick a straw right in them and slurp up the goodness.
Debutants: California Cara Cara oranges made an appearance for the first time this year and will definitely be back. Honorable mention: The Florida pummelo made its first appearance, and we’re are looking forward to more next year.
Most difficult to pronounce: Shiranui mandarins.
Most likely to succeed: Juicy Crunch tangerines, so sweet!
Wish we had them all year: Meyer lemons.
Crowd pleaser: Florida grapefruit this year were the perfect balance of sweet and tart.
We had such a fun time over our season, and we keep looking for awesome varieties of citrus to bring you. Nothing brightens up a dark winter day like a piece of tree-ripened citrus fresh from the grove. We know you enjoyed them as much as we did.
Now, it’s time to get ready for Georgia peaches…See you at the truck!
