Sunkist Growers PMA Video

NEW ORLEANS -- Valencia, Calif.-based Sunkist Growers is launching its Delite brand of mandarins this fall.

Joan Wickham, director of communications, said Oct. 20 at PMA Fresh Summit, that the brand is the original brand from Mulholland Citrus, Orange Cove, Calif., which joined Sunkist this fall. 

Wickham said the label promotes quality citrus rather than appealing to children, like many other easy-peel citrus brands.

Mulholland projects to pack 8 million 5-pound carton equivalents of mandarins this season.

As a former UCCE weed specialist in Kern County, I look forward to the new mandarins.I hope that mandarin is the dominant name for this class of citrus.
As a Seattlite for the past 15 years, I am most pleased with the fruits and vegetables that Packer people ship up!!
