Important Information About
Your Golden Nugget and Blood Orange Experience will arrive ripe and ready to eat! You can tell your citrus is ripe usually by its fragrance and warmer (orange or red-orange) hue. The fruit will feel slightly more dense in your hand than in an unripe state.
Golden Nuggets and Blood Oranges are a delightfully refreshing snack out of hand. You can enjoy both your citrus atop a salad, or in a marinade, dessert or cocktail!
Golden Nuggets have a bumpy rind that makes them easy to peel and enjoy. Blood Oranges can be sliced or peeled into wedges. They also make delicious fresh juice as well.
It is not recommended to eat citrus skin. Blood Oranges may contain seeds. Remove before eating.
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. If you juice your citrus, we recommend only storing for 1-2 days.
It is not recommended to freeze whole citrus fruits. However you can:

These easy-peel, rustic citrus make a great snackable fruit. Golden Nuggets are seedless mandarins that are harvested mid to late season, and have been voted one of the best-flavored citrus varieties in the world by taste panels. They are super sweet, with a nugget-like or bumpy rind. Blood Oranges, known for splashes of deep red in their pulp, are less tangy than standard oranges and have more of a floral flavor. They are typically seedless and great for juicing or eating out of hand.

Great fruit!! I would recommend this to all!!
Thank you, Richard! We're so happy that you enjoyed the fruit from Rick's Produce :) ~Jenny
It was goooooood!
Hey Juliann! We're realllllllly happy to hear you enjoyed it!
Fruitstand is having a very difficult time dealing with shipping delays associated with Covid and the unusual weather recently. I have very much enjoyed all the fruit I have received when mother nature didn't intervene and delay delivery. Nonetheless, when I've received a shipment that wasn't perfect they have very quickly resolved the matter. These are challenging times. I always look forward to the next announcement of a new product's availability!
Hi Leslie! Thank you for your honest feedback. You're right, lots of storms cause delays. And we're so happy to work with you to make it right! We can't wait to get more produce out to you :) ~Jenny
It was easy to order. Not so transparent as to what date I would receive my box. However, fruits are yummy. Though more expensive. But, I am helping the farmers directly. So, okay to do periodically for me. Need to keep a budget.
Hi Alice! We're really happy to hear that the citrus was good and you had an easy time ordering. We're working on improving our notification system around when you'll get your box so stay tuned for that. Thanks for supporting the farmers! We appreciate you :) ~Jenny
Going to dig into those lucious nuggets today.....again, thanks!
Yaaaa! Dig in and enjoy every bite, Dean! ~Jenny
I first had a blood orange in Italy in 2002. They were so bitter! However, they have truly changed through the years. These are so juicy and much sweeter. They have become my go-to snack. I love adding them to iced tea instead of lemons. The Golden Nuggets are just the right size for a quick treat!
Hi Colleen! This is such an interesting experience with the flavors from Italy to those from California. We're thrilled you love both the Blood Oranges and the sweet Golden Nuggets! And, that's a smart idea to add them to iced tea - I gotta try that! Thanks for sharing your experience with us :) ~Jenny
