This Week's Box: April 15, 2019

Pixie Tangerine
Churchill-Brenneis Farm, Ojai, Ca
A unique variety of mandarin, the pebbly skin of this late season tangerine easily gives way to a delightfully robust flavor.

Navel Oranges
Olsen Organic Farm, Lindsay, CA
California Navel Oranges are considered to be the best Navels for eating out of hand. They have a thick skin that is easy to peel, are seedless and have a sweet flesh that makes them a perfect snack. 

Pink Lady Apples
Smit Farm, Linden, CA
Pink Lady Apples are a cross between the Golden Delicious and Lady Williams. They are a crisp and juicy apple with a tart finish. Pink skins and a creamy white colored flesh that resists browning make this an excellent apple for salads and slicing.

Fuji Apples
Smit Farm, Linden, CA
Fujis are a cross between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet, an heirloom apple dating back to Thomas Jefferson. They are one of the sweetest variety apples around making them a household favorite.

Hass Avocados
Del Ray, Temecula, Ca
Creamy in texture, nutty in flavor, with a small to medium seed. The Hass skin is easy to peel and darkens from green to purplish-black as it ripens.
