Valencia oranges are reputed for their exceptional juice. Medium to large in size, this orange has a thin easy-to-peel smooth deep orange colored rind. Slightly more acidic than the navel orange, it has only a few seeds. Valencia oranges continue to ripen after harvest; the longer this popular orange ripens, the sweeter the taste.
Valencia oranges are available fall through spring.
Valencia oranges sometimes endure a natural process called "regreening" in late spring and summer. This process occurs when fruit is left on the tree during summer months. Warm temperatures cause a pigment called chlorophyll to return to the orange's skin which causes the greenish tint. The color of skin has no effect on the sweetness or quality of the orange. The world's most important commercial variety, Valencia oranges are often called summer oranges.
