Blood Oranges Are Now In!
The Moro Blood OrangeHooray! We now stock Moro blood oranges again. Treat yourself to this great-tasting citrus if you've never tried one before.

The blood orange is a variety of orange with crimson, blood-colored flesh. The juice is sweet but somewhat bitter and less acidic than that of regular table oranges.

Some people aren't prepared for how deeply colored these tastey oranges are. Be sure to cut them open over a counter and away from clothing that can stain.

Current research indicates that blood oranges are a good source of Vitamin C. The fruit's red pigment, anthocyanin, is an antioxidant that reduces the risks associated with many ailments, including age-related illnesses.

Blood oranges contain about 130 percent of the recommended amounts of Vitamin C, and diminish the risk of heart disease, some types of cancer and "bad" cholesterol build-up. They may also reduce the risk of cataracts, and aid in the body's healing process.

Just one medium-size orange contains 260 milligrams of potassium; 15 percent of the FDA's daily recommendation. Potassium also lowers blood pressure, decreasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, helps to regulate heart rhythm, and affects body growth and maintenance.

Of course, just eating any medium-sized orange provides 28 percent of the recommended daily amount of dietary fiber. Oranges provide more fiber than any of the top 20 fruits or vegetables consumed today! Oranges can also be a valuable source of iron, calcium and vitamin A.
