Q: Is your produce organic?
A: We are not certified organic but use sustainable growing practices and do not spray our fruit with any harmful insecticides or pesticides.
Q: Is your fruit waxed?
A: No, our fruit is not waxed. It is only brushed to remove any dirt or dust.
Q: How long will my fruit last?
A: All citrus is picked fresh each week and is best consumed within two weeks. To extend the shelf life of your citrus store in a cool, dry area with good ventilation. For maximum shelf life store in the fridge.
Q: How long will my garlic last?
A: Our garlic varieties are harvest in November and early December and if kept in a cool, dry, dark, well ventilated area should store through until late April, early May.
Q: Can I still use my garlic if it has green shoots?
A: Yes, you can still use your garlic if it has green shoots. The garlic still has excellent flavour and nutrition but will slowly continue to lose moisture as its energy is going into producing a shoot. Bon Appetit!
Q: When are oranges in season?
A: There are two main growing seasons in Australia. Navel oranges are harvested from winter through to spring and Valencia oranges are harvested from late spring through to autumn. At Kingfisher Citrus our fruit is always picked fresh for the customer each week, which means we can offer a continuous supply of fresh seasonal oranges year round.
Q: Why do summer oranges have a green tinge?
A: Summer oranges may endure a natural process called “regreening”, where the skin reabsorbs chlorophyll due to rising temperatures and is often referred to as the summer orange’s natural sunscreen.
