Has anyone had any Ojai Pixie Tangerines yet this year? They are one of my favorites (I know I got a lot of favorites), but these Pixies hold a special place in my heart as they are the first piece of citrus I ever directly ate from a tree. They come from a magical place called Ojai, California. Unfortunately they were hit by the wildfires pretty hard last year. The Pixie Tangerines trees survived and the fruit is out there.
Why are Pixies grown in Ojai so good? The micro climate in Ojai. Grown elsewhere they don’t live up to the same standard – it wasn’t until they were grown there that people realized their potential. Just as Vidilia onions are best in Vidialia, Georgia or certain wines are better from certain regions. The Ojai Valley runs from east to west, giving the Pixies plenty of sunshine. Ojai has a Mediterranean climate, which means hot, dry summers and mild winters .
