The King of Juicing Oranges - They are deliciously sweet and juicy.
Originating in China and taken back to Spain by Spanish voyages, these oranges are named after the city of Valencia. The skin colour of the orange may vary depending on how hot the weather is. They can be bright yellow in colour and can sometimes have a bit green mixed in. The orange has a bright orange coloured flesh surrounded by a thin pebbly skin.
Flavour - The perfect ratio of sweet to tart flavour. This is what makes them great juicing oranges.
Health Benefits - Packed full of Vitamin C, it can aid in fighting flus and colds.
Availability - Available November - April.
Storage - Store oranges in the dry crisp area of the refrigerator. Oranges will generally keep well at room temperature for about a week. The longer you leave them out can cause the oranges to shrivel and lose flavour.
