Cuties Mandarins & Clementines
In the early 1980s, Clementine mandarins were first imported from Spain to the Northeast region of the United States. Consumption of the sweet little fruit grew rapidly and during the 90’s Sun Pacific began looking for a way to make this sweet little fruit available to even more kids in America. In 1999, Sun Pacific began planting Spanish Mandarin trees south of Bakersfield, CA and named the perfect little fruit Cuties.

Cuties are harvested during the winter time and are made up of several delicious varieties including Clementines, W. Murcotts and Tangos. In our California orchards, Clementines are harvested between mid/late October and early January, and Murcotts and Tangos between mid-January and April. All of these delicious varieties are part of the Mandarin family.
