Quick Overview

Our organic oranges are grown by a small group of farmers in the Almerian hills of Spain and a co-operative of farmers in Marrakech so we can offer them year round.

Cooking

Oranges can be used in an almost infinite variety of cakes and desserts, squeezed for juice, used as an ingredient for marinades and savoury dishes. Try combining with watercress, beetroot and finely sliced red onion for a refreshing salad.

Storage

Oranges will store for up to two weeks at room temperature or in the fridge.

Varieties

Our varieties include Navel, Valencia, Valencia Late and Saustina; Seville and blood oranges in season.

Growers

Our oranges are grown by a co-operative of farmers in Marrakech from May to September and by a small group of farmers in the Almerian hills of Spain between October and April. The group in Spain is headed up by Ginés Garcia, who is fiercely proud of his farm and the biodiversity it supports. He's even inspired other farmers in the area to join up and convert to organic.

More info

One orange provides twice the adult daily requirement of vitamin C and is high in dietary fibre.

Country of origin

Grown in South Africa.

Class

Our oranges are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
