Fresh sliced Cara Cara (Red Navel) oranges

A Cara Cara Orange is also called a Red Navel Orange. This citrus fruit variety has a dark orange-red interior fruit color, and is very sweet with generally a very low acid content.

Cara Cara oranges are typically harvested from Venezuela during the months of October to January. They are medium-sized, round, with ten to twelve interior orange segments and very few seeds.

It’s quite easy to understand why a Cara Cara Orange is considered to be one of the best eating oranges in the world–just like their cousin, the Navel Orange.

On the outside, a Cara Cara orange has a skin color that is more yellow than orange, with a rich, red pulp inside. They make a wonderful accent to any dish and recipe, and especially to fresh salads.
