Florida Shiranui Mandarins
Big, ugly and amazing. These tangy mandarins are uniquely delicious, with a candy-like flavor and just might be the best tasting orange there is!See What's In Season!
While most Florida citrus grows well in south Florida, the hardy mandarin tree actually thrives in the north where temperatures get down to near freezing. Warm summers keep these enormous oranges growing and maturing, while cool fall nights slow down the maturation so that the fruit can develop all the sugar needed.
Our partner farm Florida Georgia Citrus is located in Monticello, Florida and is lead by Kim Jones, one of the most dedicated and innovative growers we’ve ever met.
After spending 48 years in the farming industry, Kim and four generations of his family are now running the farm and growing the best Satsumas we’ve ever tasted.
In order to get as big as they need to be, we don’t harvest Shiranuis until January. All of our Shiranuis are harvested to order, and need to be clipped off the trees to prevent damage to the peel. From there, it is washed, packed and on its way to you!
means perfect fruit.
All our fruit is “tree ripened” allowing it to stay on the tree longer giving it richer, sweeter flavor. Most grocery store fruit is picked too early and stored for weeks or even months. Our fruit is picked and delivered directly to you within days of harvest – you’ll taste the difference.
Shiranuis are pretty rare. The ones that makes it to the grocery store are old, spending weeks in warehouses. This is great for shelf life, but terrible for flavor.
Shiranuis are a delicate fruit that have to be handled carefully. Ours are carefully grown and never artifically colored. We never keep them in cold storage, we deliver to you within days of harvest for the best flavor possible!
Our Florida Shiranui harvest takes place in January each year. Pre-orders begin in December, and we only harvest what is needed for our orders.
We offer our Shiranuis in a 10 lb. box shipping nationally directly to your home or to your friends and family!
