Robbie’s Produce Tips: Blood Oranges
- If it’s a stem and leaf blood orange, the leaves should be green and fresh.
- The orange should have a good red blush to it. It shouldn’t look like a regular Valencia or navel orange.
- It should feel heavy for its size.
- We have samples for you in the store showcasing the beautiful dark-red flesh so you’ll know what the interior should look like.
