The cloak of a grapefruit but with a flavor reminiscent of lemon, the aromatic and large Ponderosa could be turned to a marvelous marmalade, enjoyed on a charcuterie board or find itself as a fresh and brilliant contrast atop a decadent cheesecake.
Less acidic with a firmer flesh than traditional grapefruit, the Pomelo has a zesty, tropical scent and a very sweet flavor. Segment and toss into salads or pilafs. Or heat up a simple compote to drizzle over Panettone, French toast or yogurt.
An extraordinary, peach-fleshed orange with notes of cherry, rose and blackberry, the Cara Cara is a beauty with substance. Delicious as is or roast slices and serve with a bit of honey, a dollop of crème fraîche and a sprinkling of pistachios for an original and delicious dessert.
With a rosy glow to its flesh and a rind of canary and emerald stripes, the Pink Lemon is a stunner both inside and out. Less tart, more floral than a conventional lemon, these beauties might dress a Pavlova or add an unexpected touch to a white sangria.
Their deep, scarlet hue commands attention. The blood orange hints at a citrus flavor enhanced by a slight edge of raspberry and cranberry. Perfect on its own, brilliant as juice or cooked down into a vivid scarlet curd, the blood orange is defined by its color.
