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.
• 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.
