    It's a bit early for the huge US citrus crop that's just now trickling into stores. Should start to see some next month. I'm waiting for Sevilles for marmalade, too.

        I'm god damn in love with blood oranges too. I just wish I could find ones in TO that aren't so insipid and boring. I'm looking for the ones with intensely orangey, sweet, and sour flavour.

      My go-to for offbeat citrus is Highland Farms. They've got Meyer lemons in now; same goes for Costco. Once liked Italian/Sicilian blood oranges when that was all we got but the US varieties are as good/better and way fresher(no flame war intended/implied/invited). Another couple of weeks if not sooner.

          Yup. Saw a pile this week at Highland Farms in Miss. Back there today looking for Sevilles for marmalade.

              they're available bagged at loblaws and no frills for 3.99-4.99 for a bag of 6-7, and loose at most produce joints for 70-80 cents a pop
