You know the saying “It’s what’s on the inside that counts”? Well, that couldn’t be truer when it comes to Cara Cara oranges. From the outside, these citrus beauties look like your ordinary light-skinned navel oranges. Slice them up, however, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

What exactly are cara cara oranges?

Cara Cara oranges are a type of navel orange. They are a cross between two navels and were first discovered in Venezuela in the mid-1970s. Now they are mostly grown in California and reach their peak season between December and April.

Cara Caras have the same rounded shape and bright orange skin as traditional navels. What really sets these oranges apart is what’s on the inside! Cara Cara oranges have distinctive pink-red and orange flesh. They are distinguished not only by their beautiful color, but also by their remarkable taste. Compared to traditional navels, cara caras are sweeter, slightly tangy and less acidic, with hints of red fruits like cranberry or blackberry. And if that wasn’t enough, they’re also seedless.

Purchase and storage of Cara Cara oranges

While other navel oranges can vary in size, cara caras are generally all medium-sized fruits. Choose oranges that are firm, shiny, and heavy for their size. Avoid pieces with soft spots and blemishes.

Like other citrus fruits, keep cara cara oranges refrigerated. They’ll keep for three to four days on the counter, so it’s best to store them in the fridge, where they’ll last up to two weeks.

Ways to Eat Cara Cara Oranges

Eat Cara Cara oranges just like other types of Navel oranges! Peel off the peel and eat them piece by piece, blend them into smoothies or a freshly squeezed glass of juice, and make citrus quark are just a few of my favorite ways to use cara caras. They also make a lovely addition to salads.
