Looking for Blood Oranges in South Florida

Skolnia Feb 5, 2007 08:50 AM

The title is pretty self- explanatory. Ever since going to Italy, I've been craving blood oranges and haven't been able to find them down here in South Florida. So does anyone know where I can find them? Thanks!

    Apropos to my recent shock at recently finding good organic produce at Publix, I also during my last trip there found some Sunkist "moro" oranges, which is some variety of blood orange. They were not quite as "bloody" in appearance or perfumey in flavor as others I've had, but were still pretty tasty.

      I believe I have seen them in Norman Brothers on SW 87th Ave....though not on a regular basis.

          We get blood oranges at Fresh Market here in NE Florida. You should be able to find them at Fresh Market down south. Robyn

              I believe Robyn is his/her's name. I remember seeing blood oranges earlier in the week at the Fresh Market in Coconut Grove.

              Blood Oranges are very common at the latin grocery stores.. and you won't have to pay the inflated prices of the higher-priced markets.

              I usually get mine at the latin grocery on NW 17th Avenue and NW 31st Street or they're usually available at Presidente Supermarket -- there's several along Calle Ocho --one at 19th Avenue, one at 7th avenue.

                Saw them at Gardener's (Pinecrest) and Whole Foods (Gables). Never thought they'd be at a latin grocery store. Worth some investigating if they're cheaper.

                  it's hit or miss... if the prices are up on them wholesale, you won't see them.

                  A vendor had red navels (not really a blood orange but they didn't suck and were Florida grown) at the Upper Eastside Green Market last weekend (but not this past weekend, only regular navels).
