Our savory and sweet treat are each carefully made with artisan ingredients and fresh products. Our recipes change throughout the season depending on what ingredients we can find at their freshest peaks. Here’s a little information on winter’s seasonal fruits!
Winter is when most citrus fruits are at their sweetest and juiciest. Look for these winter fruits in our winter products for best flavor in season. Specific crops and harvest dates will depend on your region’s climate and most of these are only available locally in warm and temperate regions.
Clementines are small, sweet orange available from December through the winter.
Grapefruit from California, Texas, Florida, and Arizona comes into season in January and stays sweet and juicy into early summer.
Kiwisgrow on vines and are harvested winter through springing warmer and temperate areas.
Lemons tend to be at their best winter and spring.
Mandarins are sweet and juicy in winter.
Meyer Lemons are more seasonal than the ubiquitous Lisbon and Eureka lemons, with the limited commercial harvest running from December or January through May. They have very thin skins, making them difficult to transport and store.
Oranges add sunny brightness to winter eating.
Persimmons are available for a short window in the fall and early winter – look for bright, heavy-feeling fruits.
Pommelos have extremely thick peels covering sweet a sweet grapefruit-like yellow citrus fruit that can be so pale it’s almost white.
Satsumas have loose skins and a super-sweet tangerine flavor. Look for them starting in November and into January.
Tangerines of all sorts are in season at some point over the winter – from November through March.
