Botanical Name: Citrus sinensis
Description

Medium-large to large blood orange variety with few to no seeds. Has the highest Vitamin C content than any other orange. One of the major blood orange varieties of the world. The distinctive color is a natural mutation and is due to the presence of anthocyanin, the same plant compound that is responsible for the color of pomegranates. The distinctive color requires a chilly winter to develop properly.

Very tasty fruit and the kids love it. Juice is very nice as well.

Also the fruit can be used in a lot of cooking recipes.

I am also curious as to how well it dehydrates.
