VALENCIA, CALIF. – Sunkist’s Ojai Pixie tangerines— a citrus variety that is small in size, but big in flavor — are available through June.
“Even though Ojai Pixies are small in size, they really pack big flavor,” said Christina Ward, senior director of global marketing for Sunkist. “Not only are they incredibly sweet, but they are also a good source of vitamin C. Plus, their compact size makes for easy-to-pack snacks—kids love them.”
Named after the Ojai region in Southern California where they are grown, Sunkist Ojai Pixie tangerines are seedless, easy to peel, and the season’s sweetest tangerine, according to the company.
Sunkist Ojai Pixies tangerines are available in 1 lb, 2 lb and 3 lb bags.
“IRI data shows that the Pixie 1 lb bag, the most popular pack for this variety, is experiencing 19% growth in dollar sales season year to date compared to last year, and a 28% growth compared to two years ago,” said Cassie Howard, director of category management for Sunkist.
