Easy-to-peel, seedless and nutritious summer citrus

About Us

Summer Citrus from South Africa is proud to bring the finest citrus fruit to the U.S. market during the summer season by consolidating the logistics, marketing and sales efforts of the group of South African growers they represent. Established in 1999 and re-branded for expanded marketing efforts in 2016, the group provides Navels, Midknights, Easy Peelers, Star Ruby Grapefruit and Cara-Cara oranges across the globe.

Safe Food Supply

We know how important safe, high quality, natural food sources are for today’s shoppers. Summer Citrus from South Africa consistently exceeds stringent standards for growing, harvesting, and shipping to deliver only the best quality citrus.

Each shipment of Summer Citrus undergoes rigorous inspection and is approved by the USDA/APHIS prior to leaving the port of Cape Town, and again upon arrival in the United States via refrigerated vessels. Our advanced scientific cold sterilization processes preserve freshness during shipping and result in the fruit not having to be chemically fumigated upon arrival in the United States.

Computerized tracking can trace cartons directly to specific orchards in South Africa, assuring consumers of its reliable goodness.
