Blood oranges are a member of the citrus genus. They can sometimes look like a navel orange on the outside but they typically have a deep red colored fruit and juice inside.
The red color is the result of anthocyanins which are a type of flavonoid, a class of compounds with antioxidant effects.
Blood oranges have a unique flavor compared to other oranges, being distinctly raspberry-like in addition to the usual citrus notes.
These blood oranges are ready to eat as soon as they are picked and can be consumed as soon as you receive them.
Each fruit will look different. Some may contain more anthocyanin (red color) than others.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 3-5 pounds.
- Large Box contains up to 8-10 pounds.
