Farmers' Market Report January 10, 2014


Blood Oranges

Grower: Polito Farms
Description: Moro blood oranges are a small orange variety with a leathery and oily rind, blushed with a suggestive color of its flesh. The skin is relatively thin, though it clings tightly to its nearly seedless, segmented flesh. Juiciness varies based upon growing region and environmental elements. Its pigment is a deep ruby, almost pomegranate, color. Moro blood oranges are sweet-tart with a somewhat insipid finish compared to other blood orange varieties.
