Looking for blood oranges

I'm on a bit of a quest for blood oranges, since I think they're finally in season, but haven't heard of anyone who carries them. I live in College Park, but commute regularly to Brookland, so places near CP or CUA would be nice, but, at this point, I'm up for about anything that doesn't involve a ten-mile walk from a Metro stop.

Come next month, however, that may change.

  1. Just last week, I bought a bag of blood oranges at the Trader Joe's on Rockville Pike. I think it was a two pound bag for $2.49.

    Trader Joe's is within a reasonable walking distance of the Twinbrook Metro stop.

    1. I saw some this morning at Whole Foods in Silver Spring.

      1. I don't know what other names they go by, but yesterday I saw a bin of oranges at the Great Wall in Merrifield that had a Chinese name of "red oranges." They were 3 for $1.99 (at least that's what I remembered).

        1. Last time I got them, it was from Magruders. Can't say whether they have any now, as I have not been lately.

          1. Last week at H Mart in Wheaton off Georgia Avenue I bought ripe, juicy blood oranges 3 for $1.00
