The Blood Orange gets its name from the dark red color of the rind, flesh, and juice of the fruit. Blood Oranges were discovered and cultivated in Sicily, and later made their way to Spain.
Blood Oranges have a significantly different flavor profile to standard Oranges, and have a hint of raspberry mixed in with their typical citrus flavors.
