( Morning Kiss Organic )

It’s that time for customers to pucker at the tartness and savor the sweetness of more than 10 certified organic varieties of citrus from Morning Kiss Organic, Chelsea, Mass.

The brand is part of Arrowfarms, an organization of four companies in New England and upstate New York: Arrowfarms, Arrowfarms of New York, Gold Bell Inc. and DiSilva Fruit. Arrowfarms focused on potatoes for more than 25 years but then bought DiSilva Fruit Co. in 2002, according a news release and the website. 

This season’s lineup includes specialty citrus such as blood oranges, minneola, cara-cara navels, tangerines, satsumas and clementines, as well as the mainstays of grapefruit, lemons, limes and navels. 

“We’re excited to share our love of citrus with our retail partners and consumers. As our citrus program offerings continue to grow, so do our options for customizable sizes and packaging to fit all retail formats and price points,” Nelly Czajkowski, sales manager at Morning Kiss Organic, said in the release.

The Morning Kiss program was developed in the last decade in response to increased customer demand for organic product, according to the release. 

Citrus brings in $3.5 billion in sales, according to IRI/Fresh Look Marketing.

Morning Kiss Organic sources from East Coast farmers whenever possible and delivers daily to stores and distribution centers.
