Mango-oranges-1

One of the best things about living in Southern California is the incredible abundance of citrus fruit! The citrus season here not only lasts longer {from January through March at a minimum}, but the variety of options are pretty endless.

I'm a huge fan of blood oranges {especially moro}, pomelos, and Sumo tangerines. So this year, I was in search of a new breed of citrus to try out and discovered mango oranges after hearing about them from Greg. After stalking the produce guy at Whole Foods, I finally got my hands on some, and our dining table overflowed with oranges aplenty...

Mango-oranges-3

About the size of a small orange, mango oranges have a pretty pinkish hue to their flesh and taste a bit like an orange creamsicle...with a slight hint of vanilla and mango. It's on the sweet side...kind of like the meyer lemon of the orange world. They were fun to taste and would make a mean OJ lemonade mixed in with some sour lemons! Have you guys come across any other fun citrus hybrids lately you're loving? — Joy
