Bee Sweet Citrus Blood Oranges and Cara Cara Navels Boost Seasonal Promotions
FOWLER, CA - Nothing says spring to me like the pleasant, sweet-yet-sour, taste of fresh citrus. As the season approaches, Bee Sweet Citrus has reported a strong supply of its specialty citrus varieties, including Blood oranges and Cara Cara Navels, to help retailers push seasonal promotions.
“An exceptional blend of flavor and appeal, Cara Cara Navels and Blood Oranges are perfect for the upcoming holiday,” said Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue. “Their flavor beautifully complements holiday-themed entrees and desserts, while their nutritional characteristics fit the needs of those looking for healthy snacks.”
Bee Sweet’s Blood oranges will be available until late May, according to a company release, and its Cara Cara Navels will be available until the end of April. Both varieties lack acidity, making them great ingredients for seasonal dishes, and their bright and beautiful pink and magenta interior provide a perfect opportunity to play into holiday promotions this season.
“Cara Cara Navels are incredibly sweet because their brix levels are typically higher than other varieties,” Bienvenue explained. “Blood Oranges, on the other hand, owe their ‘berry-like’ flavor to anthocyanins, an all-natural pigment that’s also found in berries and other fruits.”
Retailers can key in on these sweet and alluring flavors and the varieties’ colorful appearance in promotions as we approach Valentine’s Day and the spring season. Bee Sweet also reported a strong supply of Mandarins, Navel oranges, lemons, Meyer lemons, Minneola Tangelos, and grapefruit.
These mouthwatering varieties are sure to shake up the citrus section and boost register rings, so don’t wait to get them in the hands of your shoppers.
