The Vitamin C Train Rolls On!

Our hearts go out to the entire world as it struggles to contain the current coronavirus outbreak.

In an effort to limit our exposure, we are only delivering to Wild Roots Felton while shelter-in-place orders remain in effect. Please make note of their temporary operating hours and senior/immune-compromised-only hours before visiting and make every effort to protect their employees and your fellow shoppers.

Above are photos of Tango Mandarins: a seedless version of W. Murcott Afour Mandarin (top image); and Genoa Italian Heirloom Lemons, Washington Navel Oranges, Cara Cara Oranges and Jincheng Oranges, which were delivered this morning (bottom image).

Stay safe and Godspeed to all!

Golden Goodness

Twenty cases of Meyer lemons made their way north today to take part in Bi-Rite Market's "California Citrus Experience." They are available at both their 18th Street and Divisadero locations, and throughout the San Francisco Bay Area via Instacart.

These lemons are at peak ripeness and were harvested yesterday and this morning. Stock up and enjoy!

***Also, for more on the history of Meyer Lemons and even a photo of Frank Meyer himself, this is a very informative article.

A Decade In Bloom

Hope everyone had a happy and safe new year and successfully negotiated the wrinkles in time as last decade wound down to the wire!

Our rain gauge sits at 16.68" with more due this weekend.

Pomegranates, pumpkins and persimmons are done. Citrus is on!

Our hearts go out to all those who have lost the homes and livelihoods in the Australian fires. We continue to clear brush and create shaded fuel breaks in the timberland surrounding us, and CalFire has done a wonderful job on the northbound side of Highway 17.

We urge anyone reading this in California to take advantage of our winter weather and do the same!
