Astro Biz: Sunkist

IMG_1930Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Sunkist citrus fruit. Sunkist sells more than 40 varieties of citrus fruits, including oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, tangerines, tangelos, and mandarins. Sunkist fruits are grown on family farms in California and Arizona. They license the Sunkist brand to scores of companies creating fruit products around the world.

We chose Sunkist because we’re continuing our fruit kick; in fact, we spotted this box in the same Coast Starlight train car in which we found the Tropic Moon that we featured last week.
