Fun Facts about Oranges

  • Navel oranges are named that because of the belly-button formation opposite the stem end. The bigger the navel in an orange, the sweeter it will be.
  • When is an orange green? When it’s a Valencia! Sometimes warm weather causes the skin to regreen, or reabsorb chlorophyll, giving it a greenish color. But it will still taste great.
  • Oranges are high in antioxidants, which neutralize the effects of free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules in your body, believed to cause aging and some diseases.
  • Moro oranges are also called blood oranges!  But don’t worry. That’s just because the pulp is bright red. They’re really a sweet treat.
  • After chocolate and vanilla, orange is the world’s favorite flavor.
