Valencia oranges are known for their exceptional juice. Medium to large in size, this orange has deep orange-colored skin, not so easy to peel. Slightly more acidic than the navel orange, it has a balanced taste, sweet and sour, perfect for juice.
Valencia orange's nearly seedless pulp makes it ideal for juicing. Use in syrups, cocktails, and smoothies. Use as juice and zest to complement butter, creams, honey, custards, and vinaigrette.
Valencia oranges will keep up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
