Well, there's an apple thread!!!<br><br><br><br>
So who here likes oranges? Whilst apples are my favourite fruit, I do like oranges every now and then. So which member of the orange family is your favourite? I personally like the smaller oranges, like clementines and tengerines. If I get larger oranges, it goes straight in the juicer!<br><br><br><br>
Which varieties do you like?

I like clemintines and tangerines too. I like large oranges too (can't remember names). I like to use the segments from smaller ones in some rice stir fries.<br><br><br><br>
In addition to taste, I pick ones with rough bumpy skins. I know these skins are thicker and will also be excellent "peelers". Smooth-skinned oranges are a pain to peel. Also clementines with loose feeling skins are easy peelers too (and always have bumpy skins too anyay <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> )

Navel oranges are so good. The smaller ones disappear to fast for my liking. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Now we're talking!!! (Uh... I just binged on orange)<br><br><br><br>
Numero uno: Navel orange!!!!<br><br><br><br>
But I luv'em all! The small ones (mandarin, tangerine) are very sweet can't eat many at once. Blood oranges have nice tartness but it's also not binge material IMHO.<br><br><br><br>
Grapeftuits are somewhat fussy as u have to scrape out the flesh - i sometimes think I use more calories in doing so than I get from the fruit. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Some time ago I bought a "Pommelo" which is the largest citrus ever. It's like a melon but in reality a grapefruit. At least the chunks of flesh u get out of it are huge - but it separates also much easier than normal grapefruit...<br><br><br><br>

all citrus are the coolest! I love pummellos, sunkist navels, and grapefruit! Tangerenes are good, but not my fav, I think sunkist navels are. If you've not had a sunkist navel, you have not lived!

Navels, clementines, and Sanquinello.<br><br><br><br>
Sanquinello's are red inside and have red juice.<br><br><br><br>
I won't buy oranges from Israel or argentina, I live in northern europe and I draw the line near the mediteranian ocean.

I like just about every orange there is. The only ones I didn't like were the ones I got sometime last month. They all had this "rotten orange" flavor even though they were all fresh. ICK! Poor Hubby couldn't eat them either and he loves oranges like I do.

We have some local oranges here called Ka`u Gold, and they are amazing! they have a blothchy skin, and the rule of thumb is "the uglier the better". SO sweet and juicy!<br><br><br><br>
I also like Valencias <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> and blood oranges. I ate 4 valencias yesterday. OMG they were delicious!!!!

Japanese mandarins! Mmmm <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:"> They're the best. Too bad I can only get them over Christmas.

no... clementines are SO much better! and those navel oranges are quite good too. I like most oranges, especially ones without seeds. One time I had a purple orange. Blood orange, I think it was called. Gross-sounding name but it wasn't bad!

I like navel sunkists more than tangerenes. I have only had one blood orange, and I don't think it was a ripe one either, so can't say there. You really have got to try a pummello though, they are so much fun to eat!<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone else here like the pith? I like it.

Tangelos- just had some last week and they were perfect.<br><br>
This week I bot Honey Tangerines- tasty sweet but watch the pits they are loaded. Very juicy too.

Keegan- I've had a pummelo before. It was good! Kind of like a grapefruit, but bigger. I like to call them "grapefruits on steroids"!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
I actually like the pith too.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Eww! Pith--gross!!<br><br><br><br>
I like oranges, but I dislike the pith so it takes me a really long time to peel them to my satisfaction. Valencia's are really good, as are navels. Clementines are yummy, but so small so they're not really worth the effort I put into peeling them.
