Orange is a tropical to semitropical, evergreen, small flowering tree that bears seasonal delicious and juicy fruits. Botanically, orange is a citrus fruit that is closely related to lemons, pomelos and tangerines. When the fruit is fully ripe, it is sweet, juicy and bright orange inside.
Delicious and juicy fruit, orange contains an impressive list of essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals.
Oranges should be firm and heavy for their size. Select thin-skinned oranges with smooth, finely textured skin. They turn golden as they become fully ripe, but as they remain on the tree during warmer weather the orange skin re-absorbs chlorophyll from the leaves and the orange turns green again, beginning at the stem end.
Nutrients in oranges are plentiful and diverse. The fruit is low in calories, contains no saturated fats or cholesterol, but is rich in dietary fiber. Oranges, like other citrus fruits, is an excellent source of vitamin C and flavonoids. They also contain very good levels of vitamin A, B-complex and other antioxidants such as alpha and beta-carotenes, beta-cryptoxanthin, zea-xanthin and lutein.
