Blood Orange

Blood oranges have a dark red flesh.


Choose blood oranges that are heavy in size without soft spots. Heavy means juicy.


Store blood oranges at room temperature for up to 1 week, or refrigerate for up to 3 weeks.

How to store

The thick peel is a protective barrier from things that normally cause mold and rot. Citrus fruits don't ripen after harvest, so they can be stored for longer than most fruits.

  • Whole blood oranges: leave on the counter for a few days or the fridge for two weeks
  • Cut halves: wrap the exposed flesh in plastic wrap and store in the fridge for several days
  • Segments: store in an airtight bag or container in the fridge for a few days
  • Zest: the aroma and flavor don't last long if stored on the counter or fridge. Freezing zest works quite well: spread zest on a tray to quickly freeze it. Once frozen, transfer to a sealed container and freeze for several months.
  • Juice: Store it in a sealed jar in the fridge for a few days. It freezes well, especially if you freeze it in ice cube trays and then transfer it to an airtight container.
