Anyone know where one could find these delicious oranges? Asking for a friend
Google doesn’t seem to know what those are.
I think if you are referring to tangerine varietals, the marketing name might be cuties in California because sweeties are the alternate name to oro blanco which is a citrus developed at UC Riverside’s citrus station.
Are you maybe thinking of Winter Sweetz?
CUTIES® is a registered trademark for Clementine and W. Murcott mandarins grown by Sun Pacific in the San Joaquin Valley.
It appears they abandoned the Texas Sweetie trademark.
Great research! Thanks, Wes!
There’s no reference to it on their website, either. Where did you find them?
My friend said she found them from a “fruit seller” in the SGV. They are delicious. Lower acidity, bright, very sweet.
Sort of the Rio Red grapefruit, but an orange.
Will call Lone Star. Thanks!
