Tarocco oranges are named for their deep pink or red-streaked flesh. Their thin skins may have a red blush also, but often times do not. Although native to Sicily, Melissa's Tarocco Oranges are now being grown in California. These citrus fruits are easy to peel, have very few seeds, and are richly flavored with a hint of sweet berries. Smaller than an average orange with slightly rougher skin, Melissa’s Tarocco Oranges are juicy and best when eaten fresh. These oranges are also popular for use in cooked sauces, providing an excellent flavor when used on meat and fish, vegetables, rice and salads.

Choose Tarocco Oranges that are firm and heavy for their size. Tarocco Oranges may have a slight blush or have no blush at all. Avoid blemishes and shriveled or moldy spots. For the juiciest, sweetest fruit look for Tarocco Oranges with a sweet, clean fragrance. Store at cool room temperatures for up to one week or refrigerate for up to two weeks.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.
