Blood Oranges, Bloody Delicious

August 17, 2017

Blood oranges are delicious, beautiful and versatile.

Not only are they extremely rich in antioxidants, they are also a fantastic substitute for several citrus varieties, including lemon, lime and the humble orange.

Originating in Sicily and Spain, blood oranges are often described as Sicilian Blood Oranges, even though they now grow in many places, including NSW. Our grower is based in NSW and use their Italian heritage to grow the best quality blood orange out there.

Both flavour and aroma is intensified in blood oranges when compared to a navel, this makes them a great hero of both sweet and savoury dishes.
