Their deep, scarlet hue commands attention. The Blood Orange hints at a citrus flavor enhanced by a slight edge of raspberry and cranberry. Perfect on its own, brilliant as juice, or cooked down into a vivid scarlet curd, the Blood Orange is defined by its color.
With a rosy glow to its flesh and a rind of canary and emerald stripes, the Pink Lemon is a stunner both inside and out. Less tart and more floral than a conventional lemon, these beauties might dress a Pavlova or add an unexpected touch to a white sangria.
Less acidic with a firmer flesh than traditional grapefruit, the Pomelo has a zesty, tropical scent and very sweet flavor. Segment and toss into salad or pilafs. Or heat up a simple compote to drizzle over Panettone, French toast or yogurt.
An extraordinary, peach-fleshed orange with notes of cherry, rose and blackberry, the Cara Cara is a beauty with substance. Delicious as-is, or roast slices and serve with a bit of honey, a dollop of crème fraîche and a sprinkling of pistachios for an original and delicious dessert.
