Ojai Pixie season 2017 is going strong — we will continue harvest into June!
The world’s largest Ojai Pixie crop is going well! The trees have LOVED the water falling out of the sky. As the soil soaked in the winter rains the trees are sighing and leaves bursting with joy. The water is making it’s way into the ripening fruits and just thriving during warmer days, busily convert that sunlight and water into yummy tasty orbs of Ojai’s peelable sweet sunshine. We really are having a great Ojai Pixie year with over 3 million pounds harvested and more to go! The BEST way to stay up-to-date with what we are doing is our Ojai Pixies facebook page; social media is easier to update on the go.
Yet we are not out of the drought, you can visit this page and it will hopefully answer your questions about Ojai’s citrus growing and the drought.
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.
