Summer Citrus from South Africa growers work together to define and adhere to the strictest quality and food safety standards to bring U.S. consumers the finest citrus in the world.
Summer Citrus from South Africa is grown in the southernmost part of the country called the Western Cape. Nestled between the Swartberg and the Koue Bokkeveld Mountains, the citrus orchards or Citrusdal are situated in a fertile valley nourished by the Olifants River.
Thanks to our unique Mediterranean-like climate, our fruit is grown in optimal conditions, producing superior tasting summer time citrus that is easy-to-peel, seedless, and nutritious.
The citrus orchards of South Africa have supported generations of farm families that continue to live, work and thrive on these farms. This long heritage of citrus production will continue to play a major role in the economic future and lives of successive generations. The vital Summer Citrus industry has created thousands of jobs in the U.S. and employs hundred of farmers and 30,000 workers in South Africa.
