Bee Sweet Citrus Brings Focus to Specialty Citrus for Valentine’s Day Promotions
- by Anne Allen
FOWLER, CA - Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and Bee Sweet Citrus’ sales team has reported a strong supply of specialty citrus varieties to meet consumer demand. Varieties that will stand out this holiday will be Cara Cara Navels and Blood Oranges.
“If consumers are looking for fruit that’s both healthy and delicious, Cara Cara Navels and Blood Oranges are a must-have this season,” stated Citrus Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue. “Both varieties are aesthetically pleasing, delightfully flavorful, and extremely nutritious.”
While the exterior of a Cara Cara Navel looks like that of a regular orange, their pink interior quickly sets them apart. Less acidic than most citrus varieties, Cara Caras are known for their sweet, crisp flavor, as well as their amazing nutritional benefits, according to a press release. A natural source of Lycopene, a naturally occurring pigment and powerful antioxidant, Cara Caras can help contribute to a strong immune system and can help improve one’s skin health.
Another variety that’s sure to stand out this season are Blood Oranges. Easily recognizable with their blushed rind, Blood Oranges are often utilized to enhance the flavor of specialty cocktails, salads, baked goods, and more.
“Like Cara Caras, Blood Oranges are often sought out for their unique flavor,” continued Bienvenue. “Anthocyanins, another naturally occurring pigment, are responsible for giving Blood Oranges their dark reddish hues, as well as their sweet, berry-like taste.”
While Cara Cara Navels and Blood Oranges work in unison with Valentine’s Day-themed promotions, Meyer Lemons, grapefruits, and mandarins are also available from Bee Sweet Citrus to help consumers kick off the spring season.
