ABOUT VALENCIA ORANGES
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.
VALENCIA ORANGES TASTE & RIPENESS
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.
