Seasonal starts for Sunkist Growers specialty citrus items continue as shipments of Pixie tangerines are expected to begin in mid-March.
Pixies are generally small, with a diameter of 1-3 inches. They’re available from Sherman Oaks, Calif.-based Sunkist through May. Supply is limited.
Another specialty, Gold Nugget mandarins, is due to start shipping in April.
“Our District 3 Rio Red grapefruit is also available now and the fruit is showing excellent color and taste,” said Joan Wickham, advertising and public relations manager for Sunkist.
