Ojai Pixie season 2018 has been a smashing success! Next harvest will be March 2019
It’s been an interesting end to 2017 and first half of 2018– In early December we had a major fire (The Thomas Fire) roar about Ojai for weeks — roasting orchard edges and destroying homes of many folks in our small Ojai valley and surrounding area. We had over a month of smoke. Then we had a rain event which made mud flow. Then we had a month of summer weather in January/February. Then it finally turned wintry and the pixies decided to ripen (for a while we thought we were going to be harvesting green, ash-laden fruit). Needless to say, during this past Ojai Pixie season the growers, their trees and their properties were a little frazzled!
Despite it all, our Ojai Pixie season was a great success with over 3 million pounds harvested and sold. Thanks to all you great lovers of Ojai Pixies it was a good season. Thank you for the support.
The best way to stay in touch is with our instagram and our Ojai Pixies facebook page; social media is easier to update on the go.
The Asian Citrus Psyllid in Ojai: This insect pest has arrived in Ojai, and the disease it carries is in our county around Somis and Moorpark. Please visit this page set up by Ojai Growers for regular updates. It is important that everyone in Ojai work together to keep this pest from wreaking havoc upon the citrus in our lovely valley.
