For an astonishing 103 years the Arnett Family has been operating one of the best farms in California that specializes in oranges.
Arnett Farms, located in Fresno, grows over 200 different varieties of stone fruits, citrus, and berries, as well as apples and persimmons. In addition to navel oranges and tangerines, they are currently selling Satsuma Mandarins, Pink Lady apples, Fuji's, crisp Asian pears, mild Oro Blanco Grapefruits and sweet, pink-fleshed Cara Cara oranges which taste like an interesting combination of orange, grapefruit, and cherry. In the next few weeks they will be getting one of my favorites - Blood Oranges.
You can find Arnett Farms citrus at SoCal farmers markets such as Century City, Brentwood, Larchmont, Studio City, the Palisades, down in Hermosa Beach, Torrance, and Irvine.
