The K & K Ranch picks their winter citrus at peak harvest rather than racing to market with underripe fruit. The result is juicy and zesty citrus coming directly from the farm when it’s ripe and ready to eat. They are about to harvest a medley of winter citrus for the FruitStand community. Cara Cara Oranges have a berry-like flavor and unique pink pulp. Smaller and with a thicker rind than commonly found grapefruit varieties, the Oro Blanco Grapefruit is known for its yellow hue and extreme sweetness. Lastly, Eureka Lemons are slightly more acidic than typical lemon varieties, but can be substituted for any of their common uses.
All produce is shipped direct from K & K Ranch using FedEx two-day shipping to guarantee freshness. Information on how to use, store and recipe ideas can be found by clicking here.

K & K Ranch is based in California’s fertile Central Valley, in the county of Tulare. The 40-year dream of Stanford and June Kashima stands the test of time. The family’s crest serves as the K&K logo to memorialize their legacy. Now in the hands of the fourth generation, K&K Ranch still brings you the best fruits of their labor. They sell nuts and preserves, as well as dried and fresh fruits, at farmers markets in their area. The family is committed to the generational longevity of their farm business and believe in keeping small California farms alive for generations to come.

FruitStand is a platform that connects buyers (you) to sellers (farms) to decentralize direct access to fresh fruits and vegetables. We are not a store, do not take position of any produce nor grow anything ourselves. Similar to Etsy for homemade goods, FruitStand is merely a bridge between you and small farms offering unique harvest experiences and the story behind each piece of produce on the site through flash sales and/or subscription boxes year round.
Our goal is to bring the farmer’s market experience online and right to your door.
