Makes my mouth water...
Unofficially referred to as the pink navel orange, this delicious citrus is another variety of the extraordinary navel orange. Its called the Cara Cara Navel. Have you ever heard of it? Its totally new to me.
Having a rather short season, the Cara Cara orange is available beginning late November until January. Rumor has it, however, that this orange's season just may hopefully stretch into March and April. I hope its true. I'm in love.
Resembling a common navel orange, the pulp of the irresistible Cara Cara orange is a striking rich deep salmon color. Its gorgeous-looking flesh offers a sweet juicy taste that blends the flavors of a tangerine with a subtle hint of a grapefruit. Hope you get a chance to try one! They're delicious!
