The Common Oranges

This classification may be construed as a judgment but is more an explanation as to the utilization of the type of oranges cultivated in the world. In the US, the definition in the agricultural regulations reads, “In Florida round oranges include navel, Hamlin, Parson Brown, Pineapple and Valencia oranges. The bulk of round oranges are processed into certain orange juice with most of the remainder (mainly navel oranges) sold for fresh eating.”

 

“In Europe,” Hodgson writes of oranges that, “… in the Mediterranean basin [oranges] are referred to as the white or blond orange (blanca of Spain, biondo of Italy, blonde of France) to distinguish them from the pigmented or blood orange. The characteristics of the common oranges are so well known as scarcely to require comment.”
