Blood oranges

£3.50 / 1kg

About

Glorious, juicy organic blood oranges from the foothills of Mount Etna in Sicily. Grab while you can – the season is short. Varieties include Moro, Tarocco and Sanguinello; their colour ranges from lightly blushing to deep ruby, but the sweet, refreshing flavour stays the same. They’re unwaxed, so you can use the zest in cooking too.

Blood oranges have thin skins, and ours are delivered ripe and ready to eat. Keep them in the fridge for freshness, and tuck in as soon as possible (just let them get to room temperature before eating, for the best flavour).

How to prepare

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.

Storage

Blood oranges have thin skins and are best eaten fresh rather than stored. They’ll last longer if you keep them in the fridge.

Class

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.
