I know it's almost the end of January and they've been coming in earlier each year, but have I missed them this year. There are none in our local supermarkets

I've been keeping my eyes open for them, and have seen none this January.

I bought a pack last week in Sainsbury's. There was a plentiful supply in the store then.

I saw some in Waitrose the other day.

Bought some yesterday, local farm shop. £2.29 per kilo.
A bit expensive but good quality fruit & worth it for the lush marmalade I can make.

Loads in a greengrocer near us and the farm shop.

I got ours from our local greengrocer a couple of weeks ago. Loads in. Marmalade done and dusted.

Got mine from a local shop. All cut up and in the freezer to be made into marmalade when it's warm outside and I can open the kitchen window.

It sounds as if the local independents have them!

Bought some from our local farm shop about 3 weeks ago, made a batch of marmalade and froze the rest. I always try to buy enough for 12 months and freeze them whole.

You should read the Good Morning, Petera, Grandmattie has been making copious amounts of marmalade.

My local Waitrose has them, but they're not with the other oranges!!

Saw them in our local Tesco this morning. Not loose, but in a cardboard box for (I think) £2. They were just beside the other oranges.

Thanks all I shall redouble my efforts. Sadly a dearth of small independents round these parts.

I get mine from a greengrocer in Twickenham, they import them, the Sevilles came in at the beginning of the month.
