Bee Sweet Citrus Promotes Seasonal Varieties for the Holiday Season; Keith Watkins and Monique Bienvenue Comment



FOWLER, CA - Chestnuts roasting on an open fire won’t be the only consumer favorite visiting shoppers’ kitchens this holiday season, as a bounty of winter citrus varieties is coming. Bee Sweet Citrus is ready to take on the holidays with a robust portfolio and what is looking to be an excellent supply.

Keith Watkins, Vice President of Farming, Bee Sweet Citrus“Our warm fall has delayed the normal coloring of the exterior of the fruit, but has helped increase sugar levels,” stated Vice President of Farming Keith Watkins. “We expect the eating quality of our fruit to be extremely good throughout the winter and into spring.”

Bee Sweet’s winter citrus line is grown under the close watch of its farming department and meets strict quality standards, a press release stated. Available in new, high-graphic packaging, all of the grower’s varieties are available in bag and bulk options.
