Get to know your winter oranges

 Boasting almost 2 day’s supply of vitamin C, the juicy orange blasts away the winter chills.

Navel oranges

Australian-grown Navels are in season from May to November. Characterised by their rich orange colour, Navels have a tangy sweet flavour. Use Navel oranges in warming winter puddings and cakes, and juice the fresh fruit for breakfast.

Seville oranges

These large, vibrant rough-skinned oranges are only suitable for cooking. The bitter flesh, skin and seeds make the perfect tangy marmalade. Seville oranges are only available in late winter.

Blood oranges

Arriving in July and only available until September, these deep ruby-fleshed oranges have a delicious tangy raspberry-citrus flavour. Deeper ruby-red tinged skin generally indicates more intense-coloured flesh. The colour depends on variety, exposure to sunlight and growing conditions.

Cara Cara Navel oranges

Grown in Australia, these delicious oranges have deep rosy-orange juicy flesh. They’re seedless with vivid orange thin skin and resemble the common Washington navel orange. This naturally sweet orange variety is low in acidity and has a refreshingly tart taste, similar to cranberry. They’re in season from mid-June to July.

Juicy, tangy oranges make a refreshing snack but they are also fabulous in sweet and savoury salads, delicious baked goods and desserts like these Oranges with Whiskey Toffee.
