Page Oranges – Try Something Different!

The Page Orange is one of our lesser-known varieties offered by Orange Ring. While referred to as an orange, this petite (about half the size of a navel orange) specialty is a hybrid of a Clementine tangerine and a Tangelo (part Tangerine and part Grapefruit or Pomelo), first created in 1942 and introduced to the market in 1963.  About half the size of a navel orange, the Page is considered by some to have the best flavor or any variety.

Dark orange, medium-thin, easy-to-peel skin with minimal seeds.

Very juicy with a rich, sweet taste

Like all citrus, high in Vitamin C and low in fat, sodium and cholesterol.

Great for both snacking and juicing, and as an addition to beverages and recipes. The high sugar content makes it great for marmalade.

Page Oranges are available from Orange Ring in November and December, by themselves or in combination with our other wonderful Indian River citrus varieties such as our Navel Oranges, Ruby Red Grapefruit, and Honey Tangerines.  Our citrus is fresh from the grove, picked at the peak of sweetness and juiciness. Citrus makes a wonderful holiday gift for that person on your list that has everything. Call us at 800-237-7847 to place your order, or order online at www.orangering.com.
