Sweet Cara Cara
Are you like many of my customers who have been frustrated with the California Navel oranges this season? This year’s crop has been a little tart due to higher acid levels caused by a drier winter season this year. I recommend trying the Cara Cara Oranges. These oranges look no different on the outside, but on the inside they have a red or pink tinted flesh. They generally have lower acid then other navels which makes them taste smooth and sweet with almost a cherry undertone. Cara Cara is a fairly new variety that first originated in 1976 as a natural mutation on a Washington Navel tree in the Cara Cara region of Venezuela, thus the name. This is the orange I have been enjoying. So come and try this smooth sweet navel and your taste buds will thank you.
