What's Inside This Week's Box
Starting with deliveries on Tuesday, February 1st. (Selection may vary depending on freshness and availability)
Mango Valencia Orange
Mango Valencia delivers a delicate sweet flavor with a vanilla finish that tastes like a mango. Originating in northern Africa near the Mediterranean, this is a great citrus option for avoiding acidic foods. Cut one in half to see the gorgeous soft, pink ring around the outside of the flesh.
Sweet-tart and medium-sized, this variety is delicious for fresh eating. Perfect for lunch boxes and snacking on the go, it also adds color and flavor to salads and cheeseboards. Just one tasty organic Tango mandarin is never enough!
Also known as the honey tangerine, Murcotts are medium-sized, round, and slightly flattened at both ends. They have golden orange skin with subtle pebbling. The rind is thin and fragrant and clings to the flesh, making them moderately easy to peel. The pulp is bright orange and juicy with a rich, sweet flavor. Murcotts can be seedless or may have up to a dozen small seeds. But don’t be afraid of a few seeds. Seeded mandarins are often known for having more flavor!
Cara Cara Navel
Likely a cross between a Washington and a Brazilian Bahia Navel, the Cara Cara navel was discovered in Valencia, Venezuela. The balanced flavor of this seedless variety, described as a mix of tangerine and grapefruit with mild berry notes, will win your heart and taste buds. Its salmon-pink flesh is ideal for juicing and fresh eating. Cara Cara is a delicious way to get in that daily dose of vitamin C!
Moro Blood Orange
Moro blood oranges are known as the “connoisseur’s citrus.” This orange is originally from Sicily and is common throughout Italy. The appearance of organic blood oranges in January, beginning with the Moro variety in your box, indicates the heart of citrus season has arrived! With raspberry, pomegranate, and plum notes, this variety begs to be shaken into a cocktail, baked into a decadent cake, or segmented into a colorful winter salad.
