Not very surprisingly, this orange was first discovered in Valencia,
Spain, thus giving it its name. Believed to be a descendant of the
sweet oranges of China, the Valencia Orange is the ultimate juicing
orange, bursting with sweet citrus flavor. When the American orange
industry got their hands on this wonderful fruit, it grew so fast in
popularity and importance, that it was even one of the driving forces
behind naming Orange County, CA. With an easy to peel, somewhat smooth
rind, this orange is excellent not only for its juice, but for eating
fresh out of hand as well.
As with most citrus, the Valencia Orange is best when allowed to ripen
on the tree. The sweet juicy segmented fresh is encased in an easy to
peel, fragrant skin. As an added bonus, there are relatively few seeds
to slow you down. The Fruit Company gets all of its citrus
tree-ripened, to give you the very best fruit at its peak. Please enjoy
your Valencia Oranges when they arrive at your door.
