Fowler Citrus Company Welcomes The Arrival Of Satsuma Mandarins

FOWLER, Calif. – Two unique citrus varieties have arrived at Bee Sweet Citrus just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“This season, Bee Sweet has large volume of Pummelos and Satsuma mandarins,” said Bee Sweet Citrus Sales Representative Jason Sadoian. “We have ample volume for Thanksgiving store promotions and are excited to market these varieties as household staples for the upcoming holiday.”

Known as one of the more popular citrus varieties, Satsuma mandarins are easy-to-peel and incredibly sweet. Pummelos, however, are often sought out for its tangy notes and crisp texture. Both varieties can stand alone as a snack or as an ingredient in numerous meals.

“With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s helpful for families to know that Pummelos and Satsumas can act as tasty additions to their holiday meals,” said Bee Sweet Citrus Director of Communications Monique Bienvenue. “Pummelo segments are a delicious addition to any salad and Satsuma segments can be dipped in chocolate and sea salt for a delicious dessert. Both varieties can also be used in spreads to accompany pastries.”

Satsumas will be available through November and Pummelos will be available through January. Variety specific recipes can be found at, and for more information regarding product availability, please call a Bee Sweet Citrus sales representative at 559-834-4200.
