Blood oranges are beautiful and delicious. You never know exactly what you’ll get when you cut one open. Some are mostly orange with a little bit of red and others are red all the way through.
The red isn’t just for looks. It actually contains more antioxidants than a regular orange which is definitely a good thing. The flavor is similar to other oranges, but not exact. Blood oranges are very sweet and taste a little like a cross between an orange and a berry.
