Our globally grown citrus makes up a key part of our core range alongside grapes, pineapple, melons, avocado, kiwi and lime. Jupiter citrus is available 52-weeks of the year with our own South African farms produce available across weeks 10-40.

Eureka lemon

With an unmistakable and vibrant yellow rind, our South African Eureka lemons are the perfect accompaniment for any citrus recipe. The powerful citrus aroma and textured surface of this variety offers a unique preparation and eating experience. The consistent tart-acidic flavour and almost seedless flesh is the reason that this is one of the most desired lemons from the citron family tree.

Available weeks 8-12

Star Ruby grapefruit

Our growers in South Africa provide the highest quality Star Ruby grapefruit from the first week of April. The Star Ruby is a large and globular fruit with a bitter-sweet flavour and flattened appearance. As a variety, the dark red colouring encases intense natural oils that are immediately evident when the skin is punctured or zested.

Available weeks 14-19

Looking forward…

Our delicious Valencia oranges, including Delta and Midknight varieties are available from our Limpopo farms after week 23.

Satsumas from our Zonquasdrift farm in the Western Cape kick off our season and are available from weeks 17-20 and our Nadorcott aren’t far behind as they are available from weeks 33-38.
