The blood orange is a variety of Mediterranean orange, fruit of the orange tree Citrus sinensis, with a flesh that tends towards a bright red colour. This colouration progresses centripetally as the fruit matures and is explained by the presence of anthocyanin, a type of pigment. Apart from a few red spots on its skin, its external appearance is similar to that of an ordinary orange. With wide variations in temperature and long sun exposure, the Sicilian climate is perfect for growing wonderful varieties of blood oranges. PONTHIER has therefore selected balanced and tasty oranges, grown in wonderfully fertile land.
