Cara cara oranges look like a cross between a blood orange and grapefruit with a rich center color. Its sweet yet tangy flavor may remind you of some of your favorite berries (strawberries, cranberries, etc.). Like most other oranges, they are high in vitamin C. They also contain a powerful antioxidant, lycopene, which gives them that gorgeous hue. Regular consumption of lycopene has been linked to lowered risk of heart disease and some cancers.
These oranges are great for snacking or because they are seedless, they are perfect in recipes: fruit salads, salsas or our easy to make pork chops below. View a video of this recipe here.
