    Default Best orange I ever had!!

    Actually it was a cross between an orange and a tangerine! I can't
    remember what the guy at my local farmer's market called it, but I
    bought two of them at his recommendation, and YUM!! I'm gonna buy only
    these from now on if I can! Very minimal seeds and rich tangeriney
    flavor!! :-)

    Probably not the same-- but a couple years ago we could get [in NY] a
    rather ugly orange. The color was green/orange, the skin was kind of
    smooth, and they were smaller than most oranges, with lots of
    blemishes. I figured any orange that be *that* handicapped in the
    appearance department had to be pretty tasty to make its way to a NY
    market.

    I was right. Seems like there was 'honey' in the name, and these
    guys were sweet as honey. Only saw them for one season, though.
    Can't be everyone saw them the same way I did.

    Was it a tangelo? I like those cara-cara oranges, with the pink
    inside.

    Tangelos are believed to have originated ins Southeast Asia some 3,000
    years ago. They are a lovely hybrid of the tangerine (also known as
    the mandarin orange) and the grapefruit (closely related to the
    pomelo).

    Temple orange. A cross between a sweet orange and a tangerine, which
    makes it, technically, a Tangor.

    Best eating orange I've ever had is a variety called Washington navel
    oranges. We don't get them here every year, wish we did.

    Could be. Looked just line a navel orange, sans the navel. A little
    smaller, redder fruit too. Yummy to the max! :-)

    Red fruit pulp?

    Blood orange?

    More of a raspberry than a tangerine flavor undertone though.

    The Ka'u Gold company on the big island of Hawaii used to sell fruit of
    that sort. The ugly fruit was called a Ka'u or Puna orange. These are
    thin-skinned fruit with a pale flesh that tastes as you describe. I've
    seen some with mottled brown skin. I'm familiar with the orange fruit
    but you probably had a hybrid of an orange and tangerine. I don't
    believe the company exists any longer - rampant thievery pretty much
    spelled their end.

    Could be. They look like them-- and all the descriptions of the
    flavor I've sound- sound like them.

    Interesting that they showed up in a local chain in NY for one season.
    [maybe 2]

    I thought for a minute you thought I meant Ugli fruit-- I had my first
    one of them last week. They taste better than they look-- but the
    ones I had were pretty fibrous.

    I had some blood oranges years ago. Got 'em at the regular grocery
    store, once. Never saw them again. They had kind of an ugly mottled
    red and darker lace pattern red rind, kinda yucky looking, but they
    were delicious!

    I don'y think I've ever had a citrus fruit I didn't like, though some
    are too sour w/o adding sugar.

    Washington navels are the predominant variety in the southern Central
    Valley. They can be great or they can be dry.

    Too bad fruit is sold mostly on appearances. These days I pick oranges
    that match the characteristics of the Ka'u orange: smooth skin with
    small pores and try to avoid thick, bumpy skins.

    The Ugli fruit is similar to a Jabong. We used to have one of those
    trees. I never cared for the stuff. Unfortunately, that tree would bear
    a lot of fruit. :-)

    Google honeybell or go to

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangelo

    http://www.honeybell.com/gifts/store...hat-devil.html

    Many orchards in Florida and (I think) Texas ship them in season.
