Mandarins & Other Citrus

Sierra foothill mountain-grown mandarins are justifiably famous for their sweetness and flavor, a result of our warm days and cool nights. Most mandarins produced in foothills are Owari Satsuma mandarins, which are seedless and easily peeled.

We also produce small amounts of other citrus, including Clementine mandarins, Meyer lemons, kumquats, navel oranges and blood oranges.

For information on citrus production in the foothills, use the links below. For consumer and home gardener information check out our Eat Local, Start Now! pages about mandarins.
