    Valencia orange

    The perfect, juicy blend of tart and sweet.

    In Season

    February — early November

    ABOUT

    • Love OJ? Thanks to a perfect, juicy balance of tart and sweet, Valencia oranges are just right for juicing.
    • This orange’s bold, refreshing zing is tempered with just the right amount of sweetness.
    • Even though the fruit may be deliciously sweet and completely ripe, Valencia oranges occasionally "re-green" in warm weather as the peel reabsorbs chlorophyll, causing a ripe orange to look partly green.
    • Often called the summer orange, Valencias are available from February through early November.

    ABOUT

    • Cara Cara Navel oranges offer the most vitamin C of the Sunkist citrus varieties, with 100% of the recommended daily intake in just one orange.
    • Cara Cara Navel oranges are known for being extremely sweet with slightly lower acidity than regular Navels.
    • They may look like Navel oranges on the outside, but the seedless interior has a rich pink hue due to the natural presence of lycopene.
    • Cara Cara Navel oranges are available from December through May.

Handling & Storage

Before preparation, store citrus in a cool, well-ventilated area. To maintain air circulation, keep cartons off the floor by placing them on pallets or racks. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that produce be rinsed before eating or preparation. Detergent should not be used as it is not labeled for food use.

The best temperature range for oranges is between 45° to 48° F.

Sizing Information

Sunkist® orange size designations, printed on every carton, state the number of oranges in the carton, and indicate the size of the individual fruit within. For example, a carton of “88s” contains 88 medium-size oranges. A carton of “138s” holds 138 small-size oranges, while a carton of “48s” contains 48 very large oranges.
