Having grown up in Florida, I have eaten just about every kind of orange there is. NONE can compare to the navel and ruby red or blood oranges! (IMO) We used to live in front of a grove and I would go so impatient waiting for them to rippen that I would sometimes eat them green! LOL! Love oranges! Sue

ORANGES #5 of 14 SUPERFOODS 4/29

Juicy and sweet and renowned for its concentration of vitamin C, oranges make the perfect snack and add a special tang to many recipes; it is no wonder that they are one of the most popular fruits in the world. Oranges are generally available from winter through summer with seasonal variations depending on the variety.

Oranges are round citrus fruits with finely-textured skins that are, of course, orange in color just like their pulpy flesh; the skin can vary in thickness from very thin to very thick. Oranges usually range from approximately two to three inches in diameter. Oranges are an acid and therefore a detoxifying fruit. Bitteroranges can't be eaten raw and are used to make marmalades;
Citrus fruit is never colored artificially.
The orange colors orange under the influence of cold temperatures. In the tropics the fruit keeps a green to green with yellow stains color.

You may already know that oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C-just one orange supplies 116.2% of the daily value for vitamin C. A good intake of vitamin C is associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer, reduced severity of inflammatory conditions, such as asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. It can help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol.

Vitamin C, which is also vital for the proper function of a healthy immune system, is good for preventing colds and may be helpful in preventing recurrent ear infections.
