Cara Cara oranges are a type of citrus fruit that are known for their sweet and juicy flesh. They are a variety of navel orange that is grown primarily in California, but also in other countries such as Spain and South Africa. We farm them at several of our ranches including Frankwood and Halford.
Cara Cara oranges are recognizable by their deep red flesh, which is a result of high levels of lycopene, an antioxidant that gives the fruit its distinctive color. They are sweeter and less acidic than regular navel oranges, with a flavor that is often described as a cross between a regular navel orange and a pink grapefruit.
In addition to their delicious taste, Cara Cara oranges are a good source of vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin C, fiber, and potassium.
Here’s a photograph taken from the Frankwood Ranch in February 2023 of the first crop of Cara Cara’s to come off the ranch that season.
