I didn’t know that. It’s helpful, I guess, that California is closer to us.
Never seen them in Ukraine. Here most of I see are from Spain.
Each have their own orange world
Wow! I had no idea, and would have thought it was the opposite. Very interesting. Hugs...RO
Curious. I wonder why that would be.
So does that mean California oranges are sweeter? My mother used to say, if you want the best oranges, buy those from ??? I wish I could remember which state she said it was.
Which is why we only ever found Florida orange juice in our California supermarkets!
That's interesting … thanks.All the best Jan
A few years ago there was an "ORANGE WAR" here in Australia.The orange crop was not up to the usual tonnage and imported oranges came in.Florida oranges - there was an outrage of unbelievable fury by the orchardists. Lead to the "BUY AUSTRALIA" lobby.From then on all imported fruit, vegetables, tinned products etc had to be clearly labelled in BIG LETTERS of the country of origin.Looked quite funny in the fruit sections - the oranges for example with big stickers on EACH orange - "PRODUCT OF FLORIDA,USA" or PRODUCT OF SPAIN.They didn't sell very well!!! So you would see people looking very carefully as to where their purchase was from. And funnier still people watching people- I suppose for TRAITORS!!!!I only made exceptions with of all things - Smooth Peanut Butter, Honey - from Argentina and Danish Atlantic Trout and Salmon from of course Denmark's coastline. The BUY AUSTRALIA movement was a huge success.Colin
I guess California's climate is good for the sweetest oranges.
I didn't know that.
I haven't eaten an orange for years. I remember Florida oranges had think skins, We cut them across the hemisphere with a sharp knife. Turned them inside out and peeled the flesh off with our teeth. California oranges, we poked our thumbnail through the flesh, peeled it away and ate the orange, section by section. But as I said, I haven't had an orange for at least thirty years.
That is quite interesting!
