On the outside, Cara Cara oranges look like any standard navel orange you might find in a grocery store. But, upon slicing through the zesty peel, you’re greeted with a stunning pinkish-red flesh that is exceptionally sweet and juicy. Cousin to both blood oranges and standard navels, Cara Cara oranges are seedless and less acidic than other varieties of oranges. Our Cara Cara oranges are sun-ripened, handpicked, and carefully packed to ensure they arrive on your doorstep in perfect condition. Enjoy this uplifting fruit as a snack, use it as a salad topper, or pair it with cheese and crackers for a delicious appetizer.
We’re just about finished pruning our pear trees for the year. The peach trees have already budded and the pear trees will follow shortly. Our orchardists are currently setting out frost sensors and confirming that our irrigation systems are all in good working order for the upcoming growing season.
This month’s succulent selections of pears include either Angélys pears grown in France or Bartlett pears grown in Argentina.
