Vanilla Blood oranges are medium-sized with a pinkish-orange rind. Its skin is thin with a pink albedo, or inner rind. The juicy flesh of the Vanilla Blood oranges has a pinkish hue that extends into the center of the citrus. The color comes from a carotenoid called lycopene (a natural pigment found in plants) which also gives color to Cara Cara oranges and Ruby red grapefruit. There are quite a few seeds per each section. Vanilla Blood oranges are sweet with no acidity, and a slight amount of bitterness. There is a faint vanilla flavor and aroma.
Vanilla Blood oranges are available during the fall and throughout the spring months.
Vaniglia Sanguigno, otherwise known as the Vanilla Blood, orange is not like any other blood orange. It is a pink-fleshed, acid-less sweet orange. The orange gets its coloring from lycopene and not anthocyanin, making it devoid of the vibrant red-purple flesh characteristic of other blood oranges. The Vaniglia Sanguigno orange is also known as the mango and or strawberry orange.
Vanilla Blood oranges are most often eaten fresh, out-of-hand, sliced or peeled. Their unique sweetness pairs well with both green and fruit salads. The fruit keeps well, both on the tree and the counter.
Vaniglia Sanguigno is thought to be native to Italy; its name means 'Vanilla Blood' in English. The acid-less sweet orange is prized in the Middle East and in the US is primarily available at farmers markets and at private orchards, as it is not commercially available.
