Oranges are the largest citrus crop in the world. The most-popular variety today is the Valencia, a medium to large fruit with a smooth, finely-textured rind which is thin-skinned and harder to peel. Firm and heavy for their size, they are picked when fully ripe. The bright orange fruit have virtually no seeds. These "summer oranges" have excellent color and quality and are bursting with sweet, fresh-from-the-tree flavor - perfect for juicing. A summertime favorite that looks and tastes like the goodness of California sunshine.
