FIRST OF THE SEASON BLOOD ORANGES!

Moro oranges, commonly known as “Blood Oranges,” are available from January through mid April. Moros are small to medium sized with a thin skin and few or no seeds. Slice open a Moro and you’ll see how they get their name: the cross sections are a dramatic and beautiful bright red to deep maroon color. Take a bite and you’ll become a fan of the intense orange taste with hints of fresh raspberry.

Juicy Fact
All oranges contain carotene — that’s what makes them orange. Moros get their red color from high concentrations of a pigment called anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes the effects of free radicals, which are the agents believed to be responsible for cancer, aging and other health ailments.

Moro Orange Tips

  • Enjoy Moros out of hand, use them for an interesting juice or showcase their jewel-like color in recipes.
  • Toss slices or segments into salads, salsas and chutneys.
  • The intense flavor of Moro oranges is wonderful with roasted or grilled meat and poultry.
  • Melt a couple of tablespoons of orange marmalade in the microwave and tumble in one peeled, diced Moro orange for a quick and exotic sauce.
