The Fruit Cart
The freshest way to get citrus and select fruit delivered to your door!
California citrus first
Our pride and joy is our own citrus with emphasis on the California Navel Orange. Back in the late 1800’s the Navel Orange put southern California “on the map” and the planting of orange trees jump-started a second Gold Rush. The original Parent Navel orange tree sent from Washington, D.C. to California in 1873 still stands in Riverside today. From that beginning, the California citrus industry has cultivated an exceptional array of Navel varieties that are now available almost year-round.
An orange is an orange is an orange?
When you shop at your local market, you are sure to find a display of oranges. Most of the time, a sign will say what kind of orange, usually a Navel or Valencia – sometimes it’s just an orange. Rarely, if ever, will the variety of that orange and the nuances of flavor and taste of that variety be described or touted. In our now global marketplace, too many other items are available to pay attention to just an orange.
Oranges are special to us!
We focus on oranges from planting the tree to picking the fruit. Our cart offers not just an orange, but a selection of the best varieties of Oranges that are available at that point in time. Our goal at Sunburst Oranges is to provide our customers with “2-day fruit” – fruit we picked one day and packed and shipped the next.
No man Is an island
When you are located in the heart of the “California Fruit Bowl” (aka the San Joaquin Valley) you are in constant contact with the growers and shippers of an unlimited number of fruits (not to mention vegetables). From time to time, we will have produce we personally know to be of the quality and flavor worthy to offer to our customers.
