Seasonal citrus available for holiday promotions
With several winter holidays around the corner, the Bee Sweet Citrus team has a wide array of citrus varieties available for customers.
“In addition to household staples such as lemons, Navel oranges and Mandarins, our team has seasonal varieties to help move the citrus category during the holiday season,” said Monique Bienvenue, Bee Sweet Citrus director of communications and compliance. “With food at the heart of many holiday gatherings, our diverse citrus line caters to shoppers looking for ingredients to salads, main entrees, desserts and more.”
Since the start of California’s citrus domestic season, the Bee Sweet Citrus team has added Meyer lemons, Star Ruby grapefruit, Melo Gold grapefruit and Pummelos to its citrus portfolio. Next month, the company will also have Cara Cara Navel oranges, Blood oranges and Minneola Tangelos available for its customers.
“Our warm fall has delayed the normal coloring of the exterior of the fruit, but has helped increase sugar levels,” said Keith Watkins, Bee Sweet Citrus vice president of farming. “We expect eating quality of our fruit to be extremely good throughout the winter and into spring.”
Bee Sweet’s winter citrus line is grown under the close watch of the company’s farming department and meets strict quality standards to ensure consumers receive an exceptional piece of fruit. Available in new, high-graphic packaging, all of Bee Sweet’s varieties are available in bag and bulk options.
