Gorgeous Blood Oranges Available Now

Bloodorange2

A Blood Orange is a variety of orange with crimson, sweet blood-colored flesh. The fruit is smaller than an average orange; its skin is usually pitted but can be smooth. The distinctive dark flesh color is due to the presence of Anthocyanins (a powerful antioxidant uncommon in citrus  fruits).  While all oranges are likely a hybrid origin between the pomelo and the tangerine, blood oranges originated as a mutation of a sweet orange.  These vibrant fruits have a beautifully sweet and tart flavor that will knock your socks off.
