Florida Oranges vs California Oranges.

We've had the best bbq, we've argued over the best chinese, we've got constipated just reading about the best mexican, and we've salivated over the best fried catfish.

But now its time to quench our thirst. What my friends is the better Orange - California or Florida?

Florida Oranges

A Florida orange is easy to squeeze. The skin is very thin, and although it tastesgood, it may not look very attractive, possibly having a blemished yellow or green coloring even when ripe.
California Oranges

Because California has a drier climate with cooler nights, the oranges produced there are thicker-skinned and have a full orange color. They are more acidic and less juicy than a Florida orange.
Uses for Florida Oranges

Florida's warmer, more humid climate produces oranges with a green tinge. Because of their juiciness and lack of orange color, Florida oranges are best for making juice.
Uses for California Oranges

California navel oranges are attractive, and considered best for eating out of hand, says the Wegmans Food Market website.
Production

The U.S. is second in the world in production of oranges (Brazil is first). Florida produces three times the amount of citrus that California does. The only other states producing any citrus of note are Texas and Arizona, according to Tony Tantillo on the Farm Fresh website.

I think FL oranges taste better IMO...
Now if you want to do avocados? CA wins. Not a fan of FL avocados.

Honestly, my favorite are Texas Oranges. Sweet but not too tart.

For CA, I prefer tangerines----yum.

For Florida, I drink their OJ, its great...I dont think we get florida oranges out here that much.

A vote for Florida from over here on the West Coast!

When I would make fresh OJ back in Boston from Florida oranges, I needed about half as many oranges than I do when I make it out here using CA oranges. Much juicier.

I agree that California oranges are better to eat out of hand due to the fact that they are less juicy and more fibrous - it's just easier and less messy!
