Seville Oranges:

Recommended Posts

Sometimes we get Seville oranges in Peterpatch. Sometimes we don't. Last year there were none.

Has anyone seen them yet in Ontario? Where, please?

Hi Darienne:

I haven't actually seen any but Farm Boy advertised them in their flyer this week, although they did not give a price. Want me to keep an eye out?

Thanks Elsie. We have a Farm Boy here and I'll look there on Tuesday. Just fetched the flyer out of the recycling and there's no Seville Oranges in Peterpatch I guess. I'll still check.

I haven't seen them this year either. I'll ask the produce manager at my local grocery next time I see him; he should know if there's something going on.

Just to update, I checked with my guy yesterday, and he says they're just late this year, and that they would have some for me in a couple of weeks at the latest. So there's hope yet!

Thanks. The produce manager in the most cosmopolitan grocery store in Peterpatch says he can't get them this year. Oh well...

I saw seville oranges in Fortinos in Hamilton this past weekend. There were lots of them and I imagine if we have them here in Hamilton, they will be in the Fortinos in Toronto as well. Cheers :smile:

We never see them in the store. I just use Angostura bitters with a little lime or orange juice. It makes a big difference in salsa.

The Superstore (Loblaws) manager says the Seville oranges are late and will be in any day now. Peterborough, that is.

Let the marmalade making begin!!!

Second thought: why would Guelph get their Seville oranges before Peterborough????

Because we're closer to the Ontario Food Terminal? :raz:

Really late in posting this. Seville oranges have been available in Peterborough for some time now and still are there.

In case you live in an area where Seville oranges are difficult, if not impossible to find, I just ordered some from

The Orange Shop in Florida.

I can usually get some from a relative of one of my neighbors - Ojai, CA., but this year his crop was severely reduced because of weather conditions.

I need to make enough marmalade and zest syrup to last a year so ordered some from this place, where I know the quality is excellent. (I had already ordered some of the Page oranges which are never available in my area).

In any event, this is a good source if anyone is interested.

Haven't seen them yet but I'm hoping. Our local privately owned grocery store was officially bought out as of January 1 by Sobeys and it seems to be having a positive effect on the produce department. I already got fresh habaneros, collards and tomatillos this year... none of which have ever been in that store since I've lived here.


It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

For those who are having difficulty finding fresh Seville oranges to make marmalade, Amazon again has the MaMade thin cut (canned), which I have used in the past with great success.

(The thick cut is still out of stock.)

The product used to be available in larger cans - the ones I had would produce 20 pints of finished marmalade.

Mamade also used to offer a lemon base and a 3-fruits base, orange/lemon/grapefruit, but apparently discontinued these items.
