Pixies!

IMG_8277-1

It’s Ojai Pixie Tangerine season, folks!

Chef Cathy Thomas (from whom some of my recipes come from) turned me onto these delightfully yummy tangerines.  They are grown in Ojai, California; we are right after the start of the season which may run into late May or early June.

These savory Pixies are:

•  Easy to peel

•  Sweet

•  Juicy – did I say JUICY?

•  Seedless

•  And my kids love them

Chefs use them in their salads when it calls for tangerines.  They are that good.

I obtain mine from Melissa’s Produce, four pounds for about $18.  They can be shipped anywhere and will arrive fresh.

They are highly recommended!

    1. I think you will find the Cuties/Halos to be different than these Pixies, Jan. They are from different seeds/trees than the ones you are referring to. I feel the Pixies are much juicier and sweeter. Their skin is “lumpier” but peel off easily, too! Give them a try!

    1. You are on my list now, gpcox…. You didn’t share!! LOL I hope you enjoyed them. The water situation here – no matter who is to blame – will likely become severe. I hope next year’s crop won’t be affected.

      1. Carol lives closer to you – I’ll have to reprimand her. Her tree was affected by the weather too and she had too many all at once.
