Important Information About

California Specialty Citrus Experience

Your California Specialty Citrus Experience will arrive ripe and ready to eat! You can tell your citrus is ripe usually by its fragrance and warmer (yellow or orange) hue. Their skin will be taut and the fruit will feel slightly heavier in your hand than in an unripe state. 

Cara Cara Oranges have a berry-like flavor and unique pink pulp. 

The Oro Blanco Grapefruit is known for its yellow hue and extreme sweetness. They are smaller, with a thicker rind than commonly found grapefruit varieties. 

Cara Cara Oranges and Oro Blanco Grapefruit are so sweet they make a delicious snack. We recommend enjoying this fruit as is, simply cut into wedges or peel to consume. 

Lastly, Eureka Lemons are slightly more acidic than typical lemon varieties, but can be substituted for any of their common uses. 



Your citrus can be stored on the counter at room temperature for usually a few days, however this method speeds up the ripening. With citrus this special, we recommend storing them loose in the refrigerator crisper drawer away from apples to keep them fresher, for longer. 

It is not recommended to freeze whole citrus fruits. However you can: 

  • Lay sections of fruit on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and flash freeze in the freezer for about an hour. Once frozen, store the sections in a freezer-safe, airtight container
  • Put the peels in a resealable bag and freeze.
  • Freeze the juice or zest in ice cube trays.

Meet The Farm

K&K Ranch

K&K Ranch is a diverse fruit and nut farm in Tulare County, California owned by the Kashima family and operated by a fourth generation, great-grandson.

Experience

Cara Cara Oranges, Oro Blanco Grapefruit, and Eureka Lemons are specialty citrus from K & K Ranch’s winter harvest. Coming direct from a small, family-run farm in California, these citrus varieties can be hard-to-find throughout the U.S.

For the Chef’s Box, $28.00 of every purchase goes to &&K Ranch. $3.76 is used for recycled packaging material. $1.15 is used for included educational inserts. $1.90 is used to cover our shipping subsidy. $8.50 goes towards our marketing expense for this offer. FruitStand’s profit for this offer is $12.68, which is used to cover operation expenses. Learn more about where your money goes and how it compares.

About The Harvest

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.

JUICY FRUIT

Let’s just say that it was like hitting the citrus jackpot when my box arrived. While I live in CA and have a lot of this fruit readily available to me, knowing that this produce was grown on a small farm made it part of the fun. The Oro Blanco grapefruit were giant, juicy and not overly tart. The Cara Cara oranges were so fresh and sweet! I had a hard time deciding whether to eat the fruit or juice it. The Eureka Lemons were so zesty and tasted great in a salad dressing. I loved it all!

*AMAZING* citrus!

This was my first order with Fruit Stand, and it did not disappoint! The Cara Cara Oranges are a surprise in an orange peel! They are sweet and juicy. This was my first experience with Oro Blanco Grapefruit - they are beautiful, fragrant and have a sweet floral taste. The pith is a little bitter (which I don't mind so much) so slice/peel/eat accordingly. We eat lemons daily and these were just divine. Excellent citrus experience!
