Different varieties of mandarin oranges ripen at different times of the year, with most ripening in the late fall and winter. Satsuma mandarins for example, ripen early in the mandarin season and Clementine mandarins ripen late in the season.
Mandarin season usually runs from mid-November through early February, bringing the taste of summer sunshine to the cold, drab winter months.
In Placer County, mandarins become ripe around the third week in November just in time for the annual Mountain Mandarin Festival and Thanksgiving. Mandarins are a gorgeous and healthy addition to all the traditional Thanksgiving Day snacks and treats.
Throughout the entire mandarin season, you can find us at our orchard daily and at the Sacramento Certified Farmers’ Market on Sundays, located in the State Parking Lot at 8th and W Streets under the freeway in downtown Sacramento from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. But due to high demand, we usually finish shipping mandarins across the US by the end of December.
If you don’t want to wait until mandarin season begins to buy your very own bag or box of sweet, seedless, organic mandarins, you’re in luck!
