citrus sinensis (sweet orange)

Among the blonde flash oranges the group named Navel represents the most popular. The name recalls the small and primitive secondary fruit which remains embedded at the tip of the primary fruit. 

Seedless and with an agreeable taste, oranges are a great source of vitamin C: An average fruit of about 200 g contains more than 100 milligrams of this vitamin, which is more than the RDA (90 mg and 75 mg for adult male and female respectively); Orange shows anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties, it protects from flu, and improves the immunitary system. 

Orange is widely used in the kitchen to prepare aperitifs.

You can find our oranges starting from november until march.
