True story about my daughter…The other elementary students wouldn’t try a slice of the Blood Oranges packed in my daughter’s lunch when she offered them. They said, “Eww, those oranges look bad.” She came home feeling teased. But she knew a secret those other kids didn’t. Blood Oranges are really delicious.
That night I reminded her that those other girls didn’t know what that fruit actually was, let alone looked like, or how good it tastes. With confidence re-boosted, she’s asked for Blood Oranges to be packed again.
Deep, rich and sweet orange flavor with tones of blackberry, raspberry, plum and pomegranate define the profile of this dramatic fruit. Blood Oranges have striped-red-orange to dark burgundy flesh, are mostly seedless, peel as easy as a Navel does, and… stain, so cut carefully.
Plus, Blood Oranges are a health-dynamo. In fact, the pigment that makes their flesh so dark red is a free radical fighting antioxidant called anthocyanin.
