Facts:  The blood orange is a variety of orange  with crimson, almost-blood-coloured flesh (that'll be where the names comes from then!).  The dark flesh colour is due to the presence of anthocyanins, which are pigments common to many flowers and fruit, but uncommon in citrus fruits. The flesh develops its characteristic maroon color when the fruit develops with low temperatures during the night.

Storage:
Best stored in a cool place, or even the fridge
