“The first Cara Cara orange was found growing on a Washington navel orange tree in 1976 at Hacienda Cara Cara in Venezuela, hence its given name. It was introduced to the United States in the early 1980s and now grows in California, Florida and Texas.”
Steve brought these oranges home from a market that has unusual fruits and veggies. Oranges are his favorite fruit having grown up in Florida. This particular orange though stands out from the rest of the orange pack.
Super sweet, super juicy, with flavors not familiar to your typical orange. Even the blood orange falls behind in every category. At a dollar a piece he thought it was well worth the extra money to enjoy something so good and unique yet familiar. I agree with all of it. I savored every quality contained in this special orange.
