Blood oranges are a delightful exotic orange variety originally from Italy. They have orange-red zest, thicker pith than most other varieties, reddish inner fruit that can range in color from pale pink to black-crimson, and a complex flavor that many citrus fans (particularly Italians) can’t get enough of.
The actual pigments that give blood oranges their red hue are anthocyanins, which are antioxidants.
