Cara Cara Orange

Cara Cara oranges are a delicious new variety of orange with a rich, raspberry-red interior. They share many characteristics with the classic navel orange, but they have a lower acid profile and a hint of cherry in their flavor. Exceptionally juicy, they make a colorful addition to salads and desserts, especially when mixed with orange-toned citrus.

Moro Orange

The Moro Orange is a sweet, juicy variety that has a rich orange flavor with a subtle taste of raspberry. It gets its name from the deep red color in its flesh, not in its skin, and is the most colorful of all the oranges. The juice is equally dark, sweet, and juicy. Its dramatic appearance makes it a wonderful garnish or salad topper and its sweet taste is a wonderful enhancement to sauces, salsas, entrees, and desserts. They share the same nutritional benefits as traditional oranges.

Pummelo

The Pummelo is a treat for grapefruit fans that like a touch of sweetness in their tart fruits. Similar to the grapefruit, but sweeter, firmer, and less juicy, pummelos have been a favorite fruit in Asia for thousands of years. They can be sliced in half and eaten like a grapefruit, or peeled and divided into segments and enjoyed in salads.

Tropicana® Premium Fresh pummelos are the largest members of the citrus family and one of four original citrus species (citron, mandarin, and papeda are the others). They have a sweet, mild grapefruit taste and share many of the same nutritional benefits as grapefruit.

Minneola (Tangelo)

The Minneola is a type of tangelo, which is a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. This combination has created a sweet, tangy citrus with a bright orange color and a long neck. Avoid cooking tangelos, as they will lose much of their flavor.

Murcott

The Murcott tangerine is a medium-sized fruit with a rich, juicy body and a thick golden-orange rind. It’s pebbled peel—thin and fragrant—distinguishes it from other varieties and clings to its segmented flesh. It is the hybrid result from a citrus breeding program within The United States Department of Agriculture.

Murcott tangerines are used primarily for their juice because of their high seed content. Freeze juice into sorbets and granitas, blend with other citrus juices, or use in jams, curds and tarts. Add segments to a salad, pairing them with duck, fennel, avocado, onion and olives.
