Owari Satsuma Mandarins & Winter Produce

Sweet, Easy-to-Peel Satsuma Mandarins Are a Perfect, Healthy Snack

Steve’s Grandpa Emund Pilz planted hundreds of Owari Satsuma mandarin trees back in the late 1950s. In fact, we have one of the oldest mandarin orchards in Placer County! The majority of our trees are planted on our southern slope, giving them the perfect conditions for citrus production. We now have about 8 acres of delicious, sweet, seedless Owari Satsuma mandarins.

Satsuma mandarins are a fun fruit kids of all ages love to eat. They are small, sweet, seedless and really easy to peel, making them perfect for snacks.

Mandarins are also packed with vitamins. As an added benefit, Placer County mandarins have high concentrations of synephrine, a naturally occurring decongestant. A recent study by the USDA shows that 10 ounces of juice from Placer County Satsuma mandarins has as much synephrine as one over-the-counter decongestant pill. And mandarins taste much better. So if you feel the sniffles coming on or are plagued by allergies, try eating some of our mandarins!

It's Mandarin Season 2020! We have a Medium crop this year but order early!! By Appointment only this year! Starting November 20th for appointments on the farm.

Navel Oranges will be ready in Late December/early January!

We’re a small, family owned and operated farm and still pick our fruit by hand just like Steve’s grandpa did almost 100 years ago. This insures you get only the ripest and freshest fruit available.

Open by appointment only. Call 916-663-3603 or email Lisa@PilzProduce.com for an appointment.

You can also place an order for mandarins by phone at 916-663-3603 or email Lisa@PilzProduce.com, and we will ship your mandarins as soon as they are available. Emailing is the prefered method as we are also the pickers and are not always at the phone!

Or, find us at local farmers’ markets and other select locations. Visit our Where to Buy page for more information.

Visit us on Mandarin Marketplace Virtual this year.  Due to COVID we will not be at the Marketplace at the fairgrounds this year.  We will however continue to be at the Old Town Auburn Saturday farmers market and the Roseville Fountains farmers market on Tuesdays.
