am currently holding an orange in my hand. Why? Because you need
to do this whenever you purchase a citrus fruit. Its weight will
tell you how much juice is within. The next thing to think about
is how a citrus fruit ripens. Once plucked from the tree, it will
not get any riper, nor will it develop more juice; it is ready
to be eaten. Having said all of that, I'd like to explain the
differences between oranges, from the everyday to the exotic.
types of oranges are the Valencia Orange and the Blood Orange.
The Valencia Orange is sweet, seedless, and extremely juicy, and
is the orange most often used for orange juice. The Blood Orange
is known for its blood-toned colour, and its fleshy skin, which
withdraws quite easily. Both oranges are perfect for a sliced
fresh fruit platter or a salad.
Orange is so-called because of the tiny bump at its base. No less
juicy than the Valencia, the skin also comes away from the flesh
quite easily. People often purchase the Valencia to juice, and
the Navel to enjoy, because it is so easy to peel.
orange is characterized by a very bitter flavour. We need to thank
the people of Scotland, who were the first to turn this bitter
fruit into Marmalade. This wonderful condiment is perfect for
bagels, crumpets and all the breads we enjoy at breakfast time.
of the citrus family are Clementines, Tangerines, Satsumas, and
Mandarins. Although they are similar to their Orange cousins,
what really distinguishes them is their ability to be easily peeled.
can I tell you about oranges and their related family members?
Well, the colour is what attracts you, but I think it is their
taste that finally says how wonderful they are. Enjoy!
