Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

Just wanted to comment on the person saying that the clerk was talking politics .... you obviously didn’t hear her correctly that is not what she said I was also in the store at the time so I witnessed it: This place is wonderful and the clerks are great , lots of free samples and fresh juice I came here because of the recommendations and they were right . Keep up the good work!

Love farm fresh so my husband and I had to stop. It's a great shop with several nut varieties, fruit, orange juice, dried fruit, pickled olives to die for. My only complaint is the woman who helped us was complaining about immigrants and the border. Hmmm..sounds like she likes the president. I almost left on the spot. (We spent $45.) Don't assume your customers agree with your politics. She said she worked there 13 years.

The California Fruit Depot is a small outlet attached to a packing house surrounded by orange groves. About ¾ mile off Hwy 58 with a large selection of fresh and processed fruits, lots of citrus, nuts and canned or preserved vegetables. You can taste almost everything. Shakes were advertised but no evidence of where they were made or served. It was a quiet Sunday afternoon in February. No packing activity going on. HOWEVER, there was juice. One of the staff cut a bunch of navel oranges in half and allowed us to juice them and drink the delicious juice, all free of charge. That made this stop worth it! The small tangerines-satsuma type fruit were also very tasty. We purchased some for our road-trip.
The staff was pretty unfriendly and made it seem like were a bother to them so we really didn’t want to spend much time there or buy anything else.

If traveling thru Bakersfield on Highway 58, this is a great stop! Friendly staff... generous in giving extra count.

Small yet epic fruit (and more) shop. Everything we've purchased has been fantastic. The dried date bits are so good in oatmeal and banana bread! There is also a eclectic array of flavored olive oils. The olive oil is good for dipping and turns popcorn into flavor corn when popped in it! The fruit is fresh and delicious and the service is friendly, knowledgeable and exceptional.
