Blood Orange Beauty

My own box of mixed in-season organic citrus arrived today, and I had a hard time  picking which variety I wanted to try first. I settled on a blood orange, and when I  cut into it, it was so beautiful I just had to take a picture.

The flavor of these blood oranges is unbelievable. It is more intensely flavorful than  any other variety of orange I have ever tried. Because these came from the earlier  season harvest, they are tangy. As the season progresses, they will get a bit sweeter.  But I was more than satisfied with the combination of flavors, from tangy to sweet. It  was so utterly delicious, I immediately ate a second one.
