The Moro Orange
The Moro orange is so called because of the rather dark colour of the pulp. It is rich in flavonoids and anthocyanins, a typical pigment that occurs with the falling of snow on Etna. These antioxidant substances, useful in the prevention of some diseases, are the causeof the red colour.The peel is orange with more intense shades on one side.
This variety has a more intense taste than the others and is smaller than the Tarocco variety. It is ideal for freshly squeezed juices, given its very low level of acidity.
Our Moro oranges are not treated with packaging chemicals, such as wax or anti-rot.
