California farm begins shipping Valencia oranges earlier than last year
California-based A&A Organic Farms has begun shipping organic early Valencia oranges from Mexico about two months earlier than last year.
“Because of this year’s early cool weather in the region, we are able to start the season about eight weeks earlier than last year,” said Andy Martin, president of the Watsonsville, California company. “Our first loads are seeing a brix reading of 10. The oranges are sweeter than we normally have at this time of year.”
A & A Organic Farms has year-round citrus programs that include organic Valencia oranges, lemons and limes. The oranges are available from November to May. The lemons are available September to November, and the limes are available year-round.
A&A Organic Farms ships all sizes and grades of Valencia oranges.
