Orange

Cara Cara Pink Navel (Pink Flesh-Seedless)

Cara Cara OrangesFruit Ripens: Jan-May

Description: The Cara Cara orange has a trifecta of attributes. It has the initial appearance of a true orange. Its peel is smooth, yet pebbled and when zested releases bright floral aromatics. It is easy to peel and when its flesh is revealed, it reflects the color of ruby grapefruit. It tastes sweeter than any given orange with flavors far more comparable to tangerines with robust and complex citrus aromatics. Its flesh is also seedless, an advantage among any fruit. When ripe, the Cara Cara orange’s flesh is tender, succulent and extremely juicy.

Moro Blood (Red Flesh)

Moro Blood OrangesFruit Ripens: Feb-May

Description: Moro is the most intensely colored of the blood oranges, owing its distinctive flesh color and rind blush to the presence of anthocyanin, the same pigment found in purple grapes. The fruit is moderate in size and often grows in clusters. The rind is medium in thickness. The flesh is dark violet red, generously juicy and sweet tart in flavor.

Washington Navel (Seedless)

Washington navel orangeFruit Ripens: Jan-May

Description: Washington navel orange is also known as the Bahia for the Brazilian city from which it was imported into the United States in 1870. Although its origins are uncertain, it is believed to come from a bud sport found in a Selecta orange tree in the early 1800s. Upon its arrival at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C. it was propagated and trees were sent to California and Florida. Although the Florida trees did not flourish, those sent to Eliza Tibbets in Riverside, California found an ideal climate for their culture. These exceptionally delicious, seedless, easy-peeling fruits quickly attracted the attention of citrus growers, and within a decade the “Washington” navel orange, as it came to be known, was the most widely planted variety in the area.
