The blood orange tree provides sweet oranges with a deep red flesh and pleasant overtones of fresh berries. 

Blood Orange Fruit

  • Named for its distinctively colored flesh, the blood orange’s red color is due to the presence of anthocyanins, the same antioxidant compounds found in purple grapes
  • Medium size fruit, with internal color from light orange-red to dark purple
  • Rich flavor, with a hint of berries
  • Easy to peel and usually seedless
  • The fruit requires cool night temperatures to develop. The fruit’s flesh may not darken as consistently in humid areas
  • The fruit matures typically in December to February
  • The oranges contain a low number of seeds while providing a juicy flesh and pleasant flavor, perfect for sauces and sorbets
