blood orange facts

Obviously you don’t need to be a genius to figure out where they got their name from… but rest assured, there’s no real blood in them! Apart from their own freshly scrumtious juices. Here are some fun blood orange facts:  
  • Their unusual colour comes from anthocyanin which is very common among many other fruits and vegetables such as cherries, aubergine , just not normally citrus fruits
  • Anthocyanin does the world of good for us including… helping to keep the liver healthy, reduce cholesterol, keep your weight down and improve vision
  • Originally from the island of Sicily (we believe although there’s a lot of dispute), they are now grown a lot in California too… amongst other places
  • They have a thinner skin seperating segments than normal oranges do, making it hard to eat like you would a normal orange where you peel it and pull apart segments
  • They also contain less pips… hoorah!
