Savor Summer with Fresh Citrus 🍊🌞🍋

June 7, 2024 | By: The Darling Dish

As summer time begins, citrus groves across the globe are bursting with the vibrant colors and refreshing flavors of fresh Darling Citrus®. The month of June ushers in warm, sunny days and a wave of fresh citrus flavors that fill them with zesty goodness!

Darling Grapefruit®

Famous for their tart, juicy flavor and vibrant color that brightens up any plate, Darling Grapefruit® arrives this season from the sun-kissed groves of Peru and South Africa. For a naturally sweet snack this summer, try boiling grapefruit halves and drizzling them with honey, or incorporate them in your baking to add a zesty twist!

Darling Oranges®

Grown across 23 Chilean and South African farms, Darling Oranges® are a true highlight of the summer. Freshly squeezed Darling Orange® juice is a morning favorite, kicking each day off with a burst of sunshine! Irresistibly sweet, juicy, and packed with vitamin C, this citrus gem makes for the quickest and healthiest summer snack.

Darling Lemons®

It’s not summer without freshly squeezed Darling Lemonade! Darling Lemons® are freshly picked from the finest citrus groves in Argentina and Chile, just in time to bring the brightest tang to all of our favorite summer dishes and drinks. There’s not much Darling Lemons® can’t do to add refreshment to a hot, sunny day! Whether you’re squeezing them into a new flavor of Darling Lemonade, adding a zesty kick to grilled shrimp, or mixing a vibrant mocktail, lemons are essential for the brightest summer!

Darling Minneolas®

A hybrid of two citrus super stars, Darling Minneolas® join the signature taste of a grapefruit with the irresistible sweetness of a tangerine. With a flavor combo like this, Darling Minneolas® ripen just in time to craft the sweetest summer cocktails. Minneola Aperol Granita makes for a sophisticated, icy treat that’s refreshing and delightful, while a Minneola Paloma adds a tangy twist to a classic cocktail. Or, use these seasonal treasures to enhance the rich flavors in your savory dishes. Slow Cooker Darling Minneola® Chipotle Pork tacos are a guaranteed crowd-pleaser!

Darling Cara Caras®

With a bright orange peel on the outside and the most vibrant pink fruit on the inside, Darling Cara Caras® are as saturated in cheery color as they are with sweet flavor! Sip on a refreshing Darling Cara Cara® iced tea, combine Darling Cara Caras® with peppery arugula for a light and flavorful salad, or enjoy them in a wholesome breakfast treat in Darling Cara Caras® Cranberry Baked Oatmeal Cups. However you savor this sweet Chilean or South African fruit, vitamin C-packed Darling Cara Caras® will always leave you with a smile!
