Last month Mom and I stayed in Cambria for 10 days while work was being done on her house. On one of our excursions to Morro Bay, I stopped at the Spencer's Fresh Market off of Hwy 1. In the bins outside near the entrance, I found a manager's special for Cayucos Summer Oranges and bought a bag. Wish I'd brought more home with me.

Cayucos Summer Oranges are a Valencia-type grown by the Miller Family (since 1987). Though labeled as seedless, I ran into a few seeds. But they are great oranges with deep flavor, sweetness, and full of juice. We enjoyed them cut into eight wedges for eating out of hand, fresh squeezed juice, or mixed for margaritas.

Another day, I spotted this citrus sale fundraiser at the Catholic Church in Cambria. I really had no idea that citrus was a local summer crop and wanted to clue in others like me to not miss trying them.
