The Sanguine Oranges stand out for their practically red flesh. Its taste is very peculiar, it has nuances of other red fruits, which makes them one of the most appreciated orange varieties by gourmets, to be used in juices and pastries.
Sanguinelli Oranges was one of the first varieties of oranges to be grown in our Alzira area. In QuieroNaranjas we are committed to growing this Sanguinelli variety because our grandfather was one of the first to have production of Sanguinelli Oranges in Valencia.
Years later, when other varieties of oranges came out, seedless and fatter, we stopped cultivating the Sanguinelli Orange because there was little demand in the markets. These last years, the Sanguinelli Orange is a very appreciated orange due to its great properties that all red fruits have, that's why we are planting again some orchards of this Sanguinelli Red Orange...
They have dark red flesh. They are characterized by a very own flavor that reminds a little to red fruits or raspberries. This makes them one of the most valued varieties of orange among gourmets, and because of their colour they are widely used in cakes and desserts.
Sanguinelli Oranges depend on temperature to bring out the characteristic red color of the variety.
Normally we start the harvest in February and it ends in May.
