It’s now Ojai Pixie Tangerine season through May. “They may be small in size but Ojai Pixie Tangerines are bursting with sunshine sweet flavor and chin-dripping juiciness. Grown in the pleasant costal climate of Ojai, California, Pixie Tangerines are picked at the peak of perfection for optimum flavor. Not only are Pixie Tangerines seedless, but their bright colored rind is very easy -to -peel and their segments separate neatly making them the perfect on-the-go, healthy snack!”
“Delicious in flavor and easy-to-eat, what more can these tangerines offer you? Well, how about their healthy goodness? Like all other citrus, these tangerines are loaded with Vitamin C, antioxidants and other essential nutrients which help maintain immunity and a healthy circulatory system. Remember, eating fruits such as tangerines and vegetables instead of higher fat and higher calories foods are a key part of maintaining a healthy diet with no-guilt.”
