Taracco Blood Oranges
Frog Hollow Farm, Brentwood, CA
A beautiful orange to deep red flesh is revealed when you slice open a Tarocco. The flesh of the blood orange is firm- er and more dense than an orange and its flavor is a little more tart. These beauties sweeten and darken in color as the season progresses.
