Vaniglia Sanguigno Blood Orange
Acidless and super sweet!
New things come around every year. The flashier car, the smarter phone, the bigger television set. Sometimes it’s the simple pleasures that keep you coming back, though. Vaniglia Sanguigno Blood Orange (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck) has been grown in Italy for centuries and never seems to go out of fashion. For good reason, too. Once you taste how velvety smooth and sweet this blood orange relative is, you will have a hard time going back to any other orange, no matter how new and flashy it might be!
The orange exterior hides pink-grapefruit-colored flesh that has such low acid content all that you taste is sweetness. Vaniglia has a hint of vanilla to it, too, that just makes the flavor all the richer. Use the juice for drinks, cooking, baking, and candies. Since the acid is so low you can start eating the fruit much earlier. It doesn’t have to sit as long to “ripen out the tart”. Each fruit just gets sweeter than the last.
Vaniglia Sanguigno is an easy orange to grow in citrus-friendly places. It is prized in the Middle East as a dessert orange and will be just as prized in your home.
These aren’t fast growers, so the sooner you order the sooner you’ll be enjoying this rare and sweet treat! Order today.
