Valencia oranges are medium to large in size, and are round in shape. The thin skin is golden orange with a rough, leathery texture due to many oil glands that contain fragrant essential oils. Underneath the surface of the skin, the white, spongy pith clings tightly to the flesh making the fruit somewhat difficult to peel. The yellow-orange flesh is tender, extremely juicy, contains 1-6 cream-colored seeds, and is divided into 10-12 segments by thin membranes. Valencia oranges can be used to make orange juice. Valencia oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, and folate. They also contain antioxidants that help boost immunity.
