Cara Cara


The Cara Cara orange boasts a trifecta of attributes. It has the external appearance of a true navel orange, only to reveal a rich red fleshy interior due to the presence of the pigment lycopene. It offers a succulent flavour, sweeter than navels and more comparable to tangerines, with robust citrus aromatics. It has a smooth, yet slightly pebbled, easy to peel skin and when zested, releases bright floral fragrances.
