Back in the early 2000’s Sun Pacific introduced the Cuties® brand
California Clementine from our ranches in the San Joaquin Valley. Already
being a Citrus grower since 1969, we understood the fine art of growing
excellent quality fruit. Our farming expertise over the last decade led us
to plant many acres of these delicious seedless gems. Our orchards still
today contain the finest quality Navels, Valencias and Minneola Tangelo and
today we also move over 20 million boxes of Cuties® California Clementines
a year!

A “Cuties® standard” exists within our extensive operation to ensure
that superior quality goes into each and every box we pack. Each piece of
fruit goes through a rigorous inspection to ensure a good eating quality,
high sugar levels and minimal seed

regulars and bought a kilo of them. I had never seen such small oranges,
but figured if everyone else was excited, I should at least try some. My
roommate's eyes lit up with glee when I walked through the door with the
small mass of gleaming orange treasures and I knew I'd made the right move.
I dumped the sunny orbs onto the dining table in the cramped living room.
We promptly sat down and ate the entire lot.

I pretty much repeat this ritual every winter when they and their
like-minded tiny orange brethren (satsumas, Ojai pixies, etc.) show up at
the markets in San Francisco. One day everyone comes home from work and
school and—Wham!—there is a big bowl of clementines in the center of
the dining room table. Their bright, sunny flavor and sweet, floral aroma
fill the house and the onset of gloomy, rainy
