Fresh Winter Citrus

Fresh Flavor Magazine

Oranges and seasonal speciality citrus are freshest in the winter months

When days are short, temperatures are cold, and the weather is wet, citrus fruit can be a juicy, sweet reminder of sunnier times. Winter citrus is at its peak from December to April and you’ll find a wonderful selection of citrus in the Haggen produce department, including Heirloom Navels and Sumo Mandarins. But that’s just the beginning! Satsumas, Clementines, Cara Cara oranges, Blood oranges, Minneolas, grapefruit and specialty citrus such as Buddha’s Hand and pink lemons are fresh and available for the limited season*.
