Navel oranges are named that because of the belly-button formation opposite the stem end. The bigger the navel in an orange, the sweeter it will be.

When is an orange green? When it's a Valencia!
Sometimes warm weather causes the skin to regreen, or reabsorb chlorophyll, giving it a greenish color. But it will still taste great.

Eat oranges and stay young!
Oranges are high in antioxidants, which neutralize the effects of free radicals, unstable oxygen molecules in your body, believed to cause aging and some diseases.

Moro oranges are also called blood oranges!
But don't worry. That's just because the pulp is bright red. They're really a sweet treat.

After chocolate and vanilla, orange is the world's favorite flavor.

Christopher Columbus brought the first orange seeds and seedlings to the New World on his second voyage in 1493.
