Organic blood oranges are Sicily’s scarlet darlings and are an unbeatable seasonal sweetness. Their blush deepens throughout the season darkening to a rich red that matches the sunset colour of the flesh inside. Their sunset-red juice is perfect for breakfast or using to make a wobbly jelly.

Producer

Giangiacomo Borghese grows our blood oranges. He has 85 hectares of citrus trees in beautiful Sicily. “My mother, Maria Carla, has been growing oranges, grapefruit and lemons here since 1955,” says Giangiacomo, now they work as a mother and son team. “My orange groves on the north side look out at Mount Etna, it’s a very beautiful view,” describes Giangiacomo, not making us jealous in the least.

Ingredients & allergens

Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac, peanuts and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

While we do everything we can to ensure the information on this page is correct, ingredients, nutritional and dietary information are subject to change. So along with the information on our website, we always recommend that you read each label carefully before enjoying your items

Storage & prep

Best kept in the fridge. If you want to use the zest, simply rinse them and grate away, since the oranges are unwaxed. People find different ways to peel an orange; one alternative is to slice the orange and eat it straight from the skin. Keep in a cool place in your kitchen or larder until they are at the ripeness you prefer. Less ripe fruit Contains more pectin.
