Blood Orange USA
Blood oranges are a rather gruesome name for a wonderfully sweet and beautifully coloured citrus fruit. They tend to be a bit smaller than others with a thick, pitted skin that may or may not have a reddish blush, but they look like regular oranges from the outside. The inside flesh is brilliantly dark pink, maroon, or even dark blood red. Blood oranges grow on citrus trees in warm, temperate climates.
The fruit can be eaten as is, juiced, or used in baked goods, salads, cocktails or other dishes that call for oranges.
