Description

A clementine is a tangor, a citrus fruit hybrid between a willow-leaf mandarin orange and a sweet orange. The exterior is a deep orange color with a smooth, glossy appearance. Clementines can be separated into 7 to 14 segments. Similar to tangerines, they tend to be easy to peel. They are typically juicy and sweet, with less acidic than oranges.

Description

Navel Oranges are globular to slightly oval in shape with the trademark “navel” or circular hole on the blossom stem end. The pale yellow-orange flesh is juicy, tender, seedless, and divided into 10-12 segments by thin membranes. Navel oranges are aromatic, sweet, and contain a low-acidity which produces a balanced level of sweet, tangy, and tart flavors.

Description

Sour Oranges have a rough skin which transitions from green when young to red-orange when mature and is thick, aromatic, wrinkly, and bitter with small oil glands that create a slightly bumpy texture. Underneath the skin, the pale orange flesh is firm, contains a few to many small, inedible seeds, and is divided into 10-12 segments by thin, white membranes. With maturity, the center of the flesh may also become hollow. Sour oranges are juicy and acidic with an extremely bitter taste.

Description

Valencia Oranges have this thin rind which is golden orange with a rough, leathery texture that comes from its oil glands. Sometimes Valencia oranges may go through a regreening process, which is when the fruit reabsorbs chlorophyll giving it hints of green which can happen even being riped fully. Regreening does not affect the flavor of the orange, and when ripe, Valencia oranges have a balanced, sweet-tart flavor.

Murcott tangerines are medium-sized, round and slightly oblate at both ends. They have a golden orange skin with subtle pebbling. The rind is thin and clings to the flesh, making them moderately easy to peel. The pulp is bright orange and juicy with a rich, sweet flavor.
