Blood Oranges

Blood oranges are best eaten fresh—out-of-hand, or in salads, salsas, or marmalades. The two most popular varieties are the dark-fleshed Moro, which is available from December through March, and the delicately flavored Tarocco, which you can find from January through May.

To select, pick those that are firm to the touch and heavy for their size. Avoid any fruits with mold or spongy spots.
