    Georgia Peach Truck - Varies


    Georgia Peach Truck rolls into December with freshly shelled pecans for holiday baking and two varieties of mandarin oranges that are ideal for holiday gifting!

     

    The mandarins are Georgia grown satsuma mandarins and kishu mandarins, which are both seedless and easier to peel than clementine mandarins like Halos® and Cuties®.

     

    Satsumas are also juicier than clementines, and bite-sized kishus are sweeter than clementines, too!

     

    The pecans are freshly shelled halves from the fall crop in Georgia, where they are refrigerated for storage in order to arrive fresher than store-bought pecans that are shelved at room temperature.

     

    Satsuma Mandarins – 1 Box, Approximately 20 Pounds, $48
    Kishu Mandarins – 1 Box, Approximately 10 Pounds, $48 
    Shelled Pecans – 1 Bag, Approximately 1 Pound, $16

     

    Free mesh bags are available for portioning holiday gifts of oranges and pecans to friends, family, and neighbors.
     

    ** NEW THIS YEAR! PRE-ORDER & SAVE 10%! Pre-order sales close at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday 12/09/20. For more information, visit Georgia Peach Truck online at georgiapeachtruck.com. ** Georgia Peach Truck accepts cash and prefers card payments. For more information, visit Georgia Peach Truck on Facebook
