Orange
   has a variety named   
Sanguinelli
Cultivated in Sicily and is actually a mutant of the Doble Fina. It was discovered in 1929 at Almenara, in the Castellón province of Spain. It has a well-balanced flavour, with a hint of plums. Its oblong shape, golden yellow rind, and succulent red blush pulp make it an interesting looking fruit, as well as a delicious one. The Sanguinelli is common in the Mediterranean, where it is commonly called a blood orange. The complex burgundy red colour of the pulp needs cool to cold weather to develop. It makes an excellent juice.
