Cara Cara, the pink orange



These Cara Cara oranges are beginning to appear at Farmer's Markets here in Southern California. They are sweeter and less citrusy than other oranges, and their flesh can range from a medium to a dark reddish orange. I'm not a big fan of regular oranges, but I love these.

Melissa's Produce has the whole scoop on where they came from, how to pick a good one, and nutritional values.

these oranges look amazing, I wish they were available here in Australia as I am often turned off by the extreme tartness of some of the oranges here.
Can you bake with these?
