We grow a wide variety of lemons including the Meyer Lemon. It’s cross bred with oranges, giving it a slightly more mild taste with a bit of sugar. You can identify Meyer lemons because they tend to have a softer exterior and a round shape.
Prickle Pears are no easy harvest, they’re covered in hundreds if not thousands of microscopic needles. The flavor hidden inside is befit such a treasure, though! You’ll be pleased as punch to pick up one of our cleaned Prickle bois!

Pumelos and Grapefruit are nearly indistinguishable, but they taste so different! Pumelos are significantly less bitter and tend to be on the sweet side. If you’re not a fan of grapefruit or pumelo, try out the Pineapple grapefruit. It’ll change your opinion in a hot minute! They’re so tasty!

Kumquats have a very silly name, and a very silly growing habit. While plenty of people believe they dislike this humble little fruit, the fact of the matter is they may not have been eating them correctly. The true flavor of the kumquat is in the skin, where the sugar goes. This leaves the inside bitter, and unaware citrus fans disappointed!
The sole variety of lime we grow is the Costello lime, otherwise known as the Key Lime! If you are looking to make a fresh key-lime pie, Murray family farms is the first place to stop!
We grow a huge variety of mandarins and tangerines, including the Tahoe Gold and Dancy Mandarins which are famous for their rich flavor and juicy interior. We offer a huge selection of easy to peel natural varieties. Don’t hesitate to ask for a sample, as the flavor of each mandarin varies wildly.
We grow two varieties of persimmons, one is the Hachia which is very much like persimmons you may be used to. They are only edible when you let them sit to the point of near rotting. The Fuyu persimmon however is absolutely amazing. It can be eaten at any time much like an apple. Delicious!

These peculiar fruits are a perfect example of what makes Murray Family Farms rare fruit expert Steven Murray great!

Sea Beans are an exceptionally unique plant, in that it works well as an alternative to salt. These unassuming green treats make for amazingly unique additions to salad or topped on watermelon. Simply rub the green stems together or try them whole!
Blood oranges and Cara Cara oranges respectively are both very similar to traditional oranges but tend to have a nice extra kick. The red color is due to a higher concentration of anti-oxidants, making blood oranges just a bit more healthy than normal oranges!
Pluots are a mix between Plums and Apricots. While Apriums tend to look like apricots, Pluots come in a huge variety of shapes and colors!
