Pink Lemons- 1 Pound
Pink Lemons, they really do exist! Variegated Pink Lemons are one of nature’s greatest “little happy accidents”. The Variegated Pink Lemon is also known as a Variegated Eureka Lemon, because they were discovered growing on their own small branch or “shoot” on a regular Eureka Lemon tree. What can you do with pink lemons from Pearson Ranch? Anything you would do with any ordinary lemon. So, in reality you really can make “honest to goodness” pink lemonade without having to use chemicals or a container of store bought pink lemonade “crystals” with “who knows what” lurking inside. They taste like regular lemons, have a similar shape of lemons, but both inside and out they sure look a whole lot different. With their green and white stripes on the outside and their light rosy pink color on the inside, these pink lemons are sure to please the exotic fruit lover in all of you. So add a whole new twist to your regular kitchen “must have” of lemons, and let’s get cooking!
When are Variegated Pink Lemons available? They are available almost year round… with the exception of a few times when they are growing between harvests. However, be aware that the Pink Lemon season can vary from year to year so please be sure to check for availability.
1 pound of Pink Lemons = 3-4 pieces and are about the size of a lime.

Sanguinelli Blood Oranges – 10 Pounds
Sanguinelli Blood Oranges from Pearson Ranch! Although some people believe that most blood oranges are from Italian origins, however, the Sanguinelli also called a “Sanguinello” was first discovered in SPAIN back in 1929… “Mama Mia”! This late ripening blood orange has more of an oval shape than do Moro Bloods, but have an equally delicious “citrusy” flavor with berrylike overtones.
So what to do with Sanguinelli Blood Oranges? Here’s where your use of them is only limited by your culinary imagination. Try them in your new favorite marmalade recipe and add a real splash of color, or how about in a vinaigrette to get your guests or family talking…and don’t forget desert, blood orange cake topped with blood orange segments, yum-o! So now that you know where to get them, why not order a box, and let’s get cooking.
Did you know…?
The dark red color of the juice they produce has something in common with a totally different fruit that you wouldn’t be quick to guess. If the juice color looks familiar to that of a pomegranate, it’s because they both have the same compound anthocyanin which gives them that dramatic red color.
The blood orange is often (and incorrectly) described as a hybrid between a pomelo and a tangerine or other citrus, but it is merely just a genetic mutation of a sweet orange.
When are Sanguinelli Bloods available?
Bloods have a rather short harvesting season. They are typically available beginning EARLY SPRING. Due to the small availability and short season, annual market pricing will also vary from season to season.
10 pound Quantities (which is approximately 28-40 pieces per box).

Meyer Lemons- 10 Pounds

After this wonderful citrus fruit was discovered in China, then brought to America, it seems that ever since, chefs and great cooks everywhere have rejoiced! And with their sweeter, less tart and abundant juice content, it is no wonder even the famous of the famous T.V. chefs and cooks sing high praises for the Meyer Lemon. So, as we here at Pearson Ranch like to say… ” When life hands you lemons, make something fabulous!”
