A late-harvest variety of blood orange with an intense coloring both inside and out. The external red pigmentation of the Sanguinelli is, by far, the most deeply solid crimson of all the blood orange varieties. The late-ripening Sanguinelli is slightly egg-shaped with purplish-red fruit that has a mostly sweet flavor with just a hint of tartness to it.

Originally from Spain, the variety has very few seeds and has always been prized for its excellent juicing characteristics both in flavor quality and quantity. After several seasons developing a home-grown crop of this classic variety, our own California grower has harvested a limited amount of this beautiful fruit, which is available for only a few weeks in February.

Choose oranges that feel heavy (juicy) for their size with a bright, not dull, skin color. This fruit will stay fresh for 10 days under proper refrigeration.

Display with other varieties of citrus including Kumquats, Cara Cara Oranges, Seedless Lemons & Key Limes as well as Ojai Pixie Tangerines and Murcott Tangerines.
