Melissa’s Brings Back Sunshine in a Peel: Ojai Pixie Tangerine Season Arrives

Los Angeles, CA – Just as the prime harvest time for domestic citrus starts to wind down, Melissa’s is bringing back a burst of sunshine with the arrival of their beloved Ojai Pixie Tangerines. These petite powerhouses of flavor are renowned for their sweetness, seedlessness, and low acidity, making them a delightful treat for the whole family.

Ojai Pixies are a unique California gem, hailing from the picturesque Ojai Valley. Grown by a collective of dedicated family farms, these late-season wonders benefit from the valley’s unique east-west orientation, soaking up sunshine all day long. This, according to devoted fans, translates to a taste that truly “tastes like sunshine.”

“We’ve been proud supporters of the Ojai Pixie Growers Association since 1997,” says Robert Schueller, Director of Public Relations at Melissa’s. “These limited-edition tangerines are a delightful way for retailers to extend the citrus season and gain additional sales while offering consumers a truly special treat. They’re only in season from March to May, so grab them while you can!”

To support Pixie sales this season, Melissa’s has a comprehensive marketing toolkit available to retailers, including:

  • Eye-catching POS materials
  • High-quality photography and video
  • Delicious and easy-to-follow recipes
  • Engaging social media content
  • NEW this year: High-graphic display bins
