Organic Tarocco Blood Oranges

Size: 3lbs

Our Tarocco Blood Oranges are sweet and juicy. Their distinctive flesh can range from streaked pink to the deep red color blood oranges are known for. Equally good for juicing or for eating out of hand, we particularly love them sliced over crisp bitter greens drizzled with our own olive oil.

What Are They?  The blood orange is a natural mutation of the orange, which is itself a hybrid, probably between the pomelo and the tangerine.
Origins/History:  Blood oranges may have originated in the southern Mediterranean, where they have been grown since the 18th century. They are now the primary orange grown in Italy. The anthocyanins which give the orange its distinct maroon color will only develop when temperatures are low at night, as during the Mediterranean fall and winter. Blood oranges cultivated in the United States are in season from December to March (Texas), and from November to May (California).
Nutritional Value:  Blood oranges' red pigment anthocyanin is an antioxidant. Blood oranges are a source of vitamin C like all citrus fruits. Oranges can also be a valuable source of folate, calcium, and thiamine.
How to cut/peel:  Blood orange can be difficult to peel by hand. With a sharp knife, follow the outer perimeter of the citrus to cut off the skin and the thin layer of pith in strips until the skin is removed from the entire citrus.
Serving Suggestions: Eaten out of hand, in salads, desserts, juices, and savory applications.

Worth it!

These are some of best blood oranges I've ever had! They are perfect sweet-tangy perfection!

Good

For the price, not worth it. I expected a more perfect juiciness and a touch more sweetness or flavor or both. They were good, but I wouldn’t order them again.

Pretty good but not great

These oranges were good but not delicious as advertised. Not much taste to them really. Also, not very juicy. We were disappointed, and would not get these again.

Organic Tarocco Blood Oranges

Oh my, what gorgeous and tasty oranges! Almost too pretty to eat but of coarse I did! Sweet and tart, love that combination! They were so good that I’m going to send some to my daughter for her birthday as a surprise. She will love them.
