Oranges are an amazing fruit (so amazing that author and essayist John McPhee wrote an entire book about them). With a history that stretches back to ancient China, oranges are consumed in many different ways around the world. Given their nutritional value (an excellent source of both vitamin C and fiber) and fresh flavor, it’s no surprise that oranges are so popular. In general, the sweetest oranges are the ones that are grown the closest to the Equator, but orange trees can be found as far afield as Brooklyn and even Iceland. The peak season for oranges in the U.S. is generally December through March.
