Note: We are now absolutely certain that this is set is not called “Citrus”, but is actually in the “Daisy” pattern line. Evidence for this comes from the Daisy complete set advertisements that show the exact refrigerator dishes. Also, we have seen original boxes (snippet pictured to left) that definitely say “Daisy” on the box.
I have gotten confused with the Daisy set of refrigerator dishes many times. At first I thought it was a set with red, yellow and orange - basically like the primary color refrigerator set but with an orange dish replacing the blue one. The reason is that a lot of times these sets get separated and recombined. I’ve seen the larger bright orange #503 1 1/2 quart and the orange-yellow #502 1 1/2 pint being sold along with 2 smaller RED #501 dishes.
But I’m pretty sure that the 2 #501 refrigerator dishes are supposed to be yellow with this complete set. So you’ve got 2 smaller yellow, 1 medium sized orange-yellow, and 1 largest sized orange refrigerator boxes in the set.
Here’s a picture of the larger orange box from the set:
I tend to see the smaller yellow boxes quite frequently sold separately, and I believe it might be because the Verde series fridge boxes contain two smaller yellows as well. Not entirely sure if these are the identical yellow or not though. If searching online, “Daisy” or “Citrus” sometimes doesn’t produce many results. So I’d try “pyrex orange refrigerator” instead to try catch a listing for the whole set.
