• Each piece passes at least 6 levels of inspection.
• We harvest for taste first and appearance second. Some surface scarring, usually caused by wind, is normal.

How to store fresh citrus


• Last longest in a cool area that’s well ventilated.
• Maintain their flavor and quality for up to six weeks when refrigerated between 35 and 50°F.
• Do not store in a plastic bag.


• Best stored between 50 and 55°F in a well ventilated, cool area away from moisture .
• The skin of the grapefruit can discolor if left in the refrigerator too long. Since it is a tropical fruit, it is sensitive to cold, but only superficially. Blemishes on the peel do not affect the quality or flavor of the fruit inside.

For all citrus:

• Tropical breezes can cause the fruit to rub against the tree branches causing marks on the skin. This is known as wind scar, and in no way effects the quality or sweetness of the fruit inside.
• The sweet (or sour) taste of citrus is due to the proportion of natural sugar and citric acid in the fruit. When fruit is immature there is a greater acid level, which lessens as the fruit ripens to its desired sweetness. The amount of sugar is measured with a hydrometer, an instrument that indicates the amount of sugar in solution. This gives the percentage by weight of sugar in the juice and indicates the sweetness level of the fruit.
• Unlike other fruits, citrus does not continue to ripen once picked.
• We harvest at the peak of maturity for the best tasting, freshest citrus available.
