Organic Citrus Explorer Basket
Celebrate the season and variety of Murray Family Farm’s organic citrus orchards. Previously found only at the Santa Monica Farmers Market, now shipping an assortment of fruit directly to us. The citrus explorer box is hand-harvested according to what is ripe and in-season in California's San Joaquin Valley. This selection is made weekly and will change. Fruit will arrive in a simple cardboard crate. If you'd like lower impact packaging, just reach out to us.

Satsuma mandarins are sweet, juicy and peel easily. They’re ideal for snacking, adding to salads or squeezing into a cocktail.
Tahoe Gold mandarins are small, bumpy, juicy and easy to peel. A delicious and healthy snack.
Cocktail grapefruits are much sweeter and less acidic than other varieties, making them exceptional for eating straight or, as the name implies, juicing into a cocktail.
Cara Cara oranges are easy peeling navel oranges with a berry and floral bouquet that makes them more complex than other varieties.
Tangelos are extremely juicy with a distinctive shape. Tart and tangy, they are fun to eat or use for food and drink.
