Harvesting Operations

Picking fruit safely and at peak maturity is critical to deliver the highest quality product to our customers. Unlike bananas or avocados, citrus fruit do not ripen off the tree; instead, the flavor of the fruit is essentially the same as the day it was harvested. To have the best tasting orange, tangerine, or grapefruit, you must pick at season's peak. This requires a combination of skill, science, and good ole farmer experience!
