Ripe Now: Cara Cara Oranges
Look for these bursts of citrus sunshine in specialty markets
The Cara Cara orange is a variety of navel orange from Venezula. The very juicy pink flesh has few, if any, seeds and a slight cherry flavor. Peel and eat alone or add some segments to a salad. In addition to being good sources of vitamin C and fiber, its pink flesh indicates the presence of lycopene.
Pick up these beauties through the end of March.
