new from twin peaks orchard
This week we are featuring two highly anticipated local crops- Satsuma Mandarins and Meyer Lemons from Twins Peaks Orchard (Newcastle, CA). Twin Peaks is a fifth generation family farm, established in 1912.
Satsuma Mandarins are a seedless, easy to peel mandarin with rich, tart-sweet flavor. Satsuma Mandarins thrive in the foothills of Placer County as both elevation and the pattern of cool nights contribute to a healthy crop. The first delivery of mandarins reveals an already ripe, sweet piece of fruit. We anticipate mandarins will remain available from now until early January. Available by the 25# case, or by the pound.
Meyer Lemons are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin. The Meyer is somewhat smaller than a regular lemon, rounder in shape, with smooth skin and a distinct taste as the flesh is much less acidic, making them sweeter than other varieties. The season runs from November through April and is off to an excellent start. Available in a 10# case, or by the pound.
