If you think all oranges are the same, you may be surprised to learn that there are many differences among orange varieties. The regions where they are grown, and how they are grown plays a vital role in taste and juiciness. Let us take Temple Orange as an example.
Temple oranges are indigenous to the state of Florida and are a hybrid of sweet orange and tangerine. Temple Oranges are large fruits with easy-to-peel skin and exceedingly sweet flavor thanks to their tangerine parent. What’s more, Temple oranges are remarkably juicy compared to other oranges.
Temple oranges also have many applications. Aside from eating them fresh out hand, they can be tossed in a salad to give it color and additional flavor, used as an ingredient in making decadent desserts and sweet tarts, or turned into orange juice or a smoothie to brighten up your day.
