Freshly picked from our groves, these pink navel oranges are extremely delicious. The fruit and juice have a deep orange flavor with sweet-cherry flavored undertones.
Melissa's Organic Cara Cara Orange is also known as the red navel orange, it originated at the Hacienda de Cara Cara in Valencia, Venezuela. Cara Cara Oranges have a bright orange peel and pink - raspberry colored flesh. Its taste is sweet with undertones of sweet-cherry, with a low acid profile. Very juicy and best when eaten fresh out of hand, Cara Caras are also popular with chefs for use in cooked sauces.
