FAQ

The navel orange season runs from December through April, with the sugar content increasing as the season progresses. We offer oranges every week until they are all harvested, or are past their prime, whichever comes first. Send us your email and we'll add you to our subscribers list. Then, every few weeks before we pick, we will send you an email alerting you to the harvest and inviting you to place an order. We will also list the other fruit we may have available at the time such as avocado, white sapote, limes, etc. Securely place your order and look for the fruit on your doorstep several days later. 

1

Are they organic?

Yes, our produce is Registered Organic. Our mature grove of orange trees was originally planted in the late 1970s by Dr. Richard Larkey (of Pleasant Hill's Larkey Park family) and have been thriving in a completely pesticide-free, all natural environment ever since.

​​​Are they fresh?

 

Supermarket oranges are picked (often from Chile, or other far-away lands), sent to the packing house, stored, washed, waxed, sized, packed and shipped to a distribution center, stored again, and then finally shipped to your local market. This can take 2-3 weeks! We pack our bags right in our groves and send them directly to your doorstep within days, and sometimes even hours of them hanging in the trees.​
