Inland Empire Old-Grove orange
America's citrus industry boomed in the early 1900's, when the fruit was considered the finest in the world, but was crushed after WWII. Today the Inland Orange Conservancy (IOC) is working to protect the remaining old groves in California. The IOC initiated a membership program to get fruit directly to local people so that the growers keep more profit. The orange harvest time is divided into three 14-week seasons. For $65 dollars per season members receive 10 pounds per week of the delicate and delicious Valencia and Washington Navel oranges during their selected seasons.
