You've heard from us that January is prime-time for citrus. This month, Rancho Charanda is offering an heirloom variety of navel orange called Gayla. These oranges are being harvested from trees that are both newly producing and up to 50 years old, and Rancho Charanda has found that the crop from the older trees are extra-sweet and juicy. This fruit will be available for a limited time, so try some before they're all gone! The flavor is sweet and juicy like you'd expect from an exceptional navel orange, with a hint of pineapple.
Of course, that's not all. Fairview Orchards' organic avocado and citrus and mixed citrus boxes are brimming with California winter citrus abundance. Malek Ranch has ripe organic tangerines, kumquats and Eureka lemons just waiting for you. When you buy from them, you'll know that you are getting top quality produce while contributing to the growth and sustenance of small farming.
