Texas Sweeties ๐ŸŠ

Anyone know where one could find these delicious oranges? Asking for a friend :joy:

Google doesnโ€™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 Riversideโ€™s citrus station.

Are you maybe thinking of Winter Sweetz?

CUTIESยฎ is a registered trademark for Clementine and W. Murcott mandarins grown by Sun Pacific in the San Joaquin Valley.

Hereโ€™s the box. Contacting Lone Star Citrus :tangerine:.

It appears they abandoned the Texas Sweetie trademark.

Great research! Thanks, Wes!

Thereโ€™s no reference to it on their website, either. Where did you find them?

My friend said she found them from a โ€œfruit sellerโ€ 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!
