Tarocco blood oranges are the most popular citrus variety in their native home of Italy. In one legend, the name Tarocco is believed to have been derived from the exclamation of the farmer upon seeing the new variety. “Tarocco” is a colloquial term used in Italy as a reference to a fake or fraud. These are the best “arancia da tavola” or table orange, squeezed fresh as a breakfast juice. They are regarded as a half blood as they aren’t as pigmented as the other two varieties grown in Sicily, Sanguinello and Moro, but the taste is outstanding you can add to your order 70p each.
