What Are Temple Oranges?

Temple Oranges were supposedly discovered in 1896 in Jamaica by a Florida fruit-grower who shipped budding branches from these trees back to Florida. The fruit gained quick attention from William Chase Temple, a prominent citrus grower. Temple Oranges began to be grown commercially around 1919, when they were then given Temple’s name.

A hybrid of an orange and a tangerine, Temple Oranges are often considered the “snacking orange,” because they are super easy to peel, section and segment with their thin, delicate skin and very little pith. Temple Oranges are sweetly decadent on their own, or as a fantastic sweet-tart addition to appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts. The rind in a Temple Orange offers a bold color and is vibrantly fragrant, perfect to flavor both sweet and savory recipes. Enjoy the fresh-squeezed juice from Temple citrus for a taste of Florida sunshine in every drop.
