Bee Sweet brings back specialty citrus season

Now that citrus import season has officially wrapped up, next on the Bee Sweet agenda is to bring back its specialty citrus season.

“While we provide lemons, mandarins and oranges to our consumers year-round, we’re extremely happy to welcome back all of our specialty varieties,” said Bee Sweet Citrus President Jim Marderosian. “Each variety has its own unique qualities making specialty citrus a great addition to any meal.”

Bee Sweet’s specialty citrus program refers to those specific varieties that are not readily available year-round. These include unique varieties like Cara Caras, Blood Oranges, Pummelos, Melo Golds, Grapefruit, stem and leaf mandarins, Page Mandarins, Oro Blancos and Meyer Lemons. Bee Sweet is highlighting that specialty citrus also offers a plethora of health benefits.

As the “foodie movement” in America continues to grow, consumers are now more and more willing to switch up their tried-and-true recipes. While specialty citrus can be a great snack on its own, Bee Sweet notes in a press release, many of the varieties can also be incorporated into unique dishes.
