A couple of weeks ahead of schedule, Jupiter’s oranges will soon be harvesting on farm in South Africa

Ready slightly earlier than anticipated, our Turkey Valencia oranges have enjoyed the recent cooler nights found in South Africa which have provided a fantastic natural colouration. The sizing found with the forthcoming crop is excellent and the internals are also looking good.

Our Maswiri packhouse has also been fully operational for 10 weeks which means we’re looking forward to hitting the ground running with our first oranges of the season.

Well balanced oranges…

Perfectly suited to juice, Turkey Valencia’s have a moderately thin rind which is mostly smooth with good colouration. The balance of high sugar and acid content provides a rich flavourful taste and the fruit generally benefits from an attractive light-orange flesh and soft textured segments.

Coming soon

Known for their premium quality, good size and superb taste, Valencia oranges are also prized for their high juice content.

As part of our 52-week supply of citrus from the continent of Africa, we’re pleased to continue with our Bennies, Delta’s and Midknight Valencia oranges after our Turkey’s have been harvested.
