How to store blood oranges
Blood oranges have thin skins and are best eaten fresh rather than stored. They’ll last longer if you keep them in the fridge.
How to cook blood oranges
As well as eating the fruit as it is, try them sliced with salad leaves and the juice squeezed into dressings or chilled Prosecco for a seasonal cocktail.
Blood orange variety
We import Moro and Tarocco and Sanguinello blood oranges from Sicily in January and February. Moros is a smaller variety with more colour than the larger speckled Tarocco variety.
Country of origin
Grown in Italy.
Our oranges are sold as class 2. This means that they might not look cosmetically perfect, but they are grown for the very best flavour. (We have to tell you this to satisfy some EU rules).
