What are the different grades of oranges we sell?
To help you better select the grade or oranges that are right for you prior to purchasing, we have created this information page that you might find helpful.
Pearson Ranch Gift Grade- When only the absolute finest California oranges are desired. PR Gift oranges are as close to perfect as you can get in nature. With very few blemishes (if any), high orange color, rich, sweet juice, and a well balanced sugar-acid ratio. These are the same oranges used in our gift boxes which are sent to the most discriminating of orange lovers all across the country. PR Gift oranges are available in limited quantities during the orange harvesting season. Always fresh picked and hand packed right from the farm in our handsome Pearson Ranch Gift "silver label" box.

Pearson Ranch Gift Grade-LOVE® Premium Grade- Almost as good a grade as PR Gift, but with a few more possible blemishes. Grown in the bountiful San Joaquin Valley of California, they have rich, sweet, juice and a well balanced sugar-acid ratio. Still far better than oranges you can find in your local grocery store, LOVE Premium is indeed a "premium" piece of citrus. The availability of LOVE Premium grade is better throughout the orange harvesting season. Always fresh picked and hand packed in our white, LOVE Premium box and shipped directly to you, these oranges are sure to please. Try a box for yourself, or give as a gift to friends or family. Besides, who doesn't want a little bit more LOVE in their life? To see the selection of LOVE Premium grade oranges click here!
LOVE® Choice Grade- If you are searching for great tasting, deliciously sweet and juicy California oranges(at a great price), and you understand that "beauty is but skin deep," then LOVE Choice is for you! They will have more blemishes, or "character marks" provided by "Mother Nature" herself (i.e. wind, or thrip scarring, or even a few ice marks), and the sizes of oranges in the box may vary a little bit, but whatever you do, don't feel you are buying a box of inferior quality oranges on the inside. Our high Pearson Ranch standards for taste, sugar, juice and flavor content still apply even to this grade of fruit. The only reason these oranges don't make it into our LOVE Premium or PR Gift Grade boxes is simply due to the outside appearance. Availability is better throughout the season. So when you're ready to buy delicious and juicy California oranges, that may look a little "rougher" on the outside but are still fabulous on the inside, remember to choose LOVE Choice.
