Cara Cara Oranges

$2.75 per pound

The Cara Cara orange has a trifecta of attributes. It has the initial appearance of a true orange. Its peel is smooth, yet pebbled and when zested releases bright floral aromatics. It is easy to peel and when its flesh is revealed, it reflects the color of ruby grapefruit. It tastes sweeter than any given orange with flavors far more comparable to tangerines with robust and complex citrus aromatics. Its flesh is also seedless, an advantage among any fruit. When ripe, the Cara Cara orange’s flesh is tender, succulent and extremely juicy.
