Valencia Oranges

Valencia oranges—often called summer oranges—are actually available from February through October, with peak supplies in May, June and July. Valencia oranges are small to medium sized, and they may have a few seeds. They are usually thin-skinned.

Valencia Orange Tips

• Fresh Valencia juice may be squeezed and refrigerated overnight. If tightly covered and immediately chilled, no loss of flavor or Vitamin C will occur.

• Fresh juice packs nutritional power and great taste into all kinds of fruit smoothies. Start with ½ cup of juice and ½ cup of diced orange in a blender. Add a peeled banana, some frozen berries and ½ cup of yogurt.
