April – October from California, winter – late spring from Texas
Juice oranges are loaded with lots of tasty juice. More oranges with a light-colored scarred surface. The most popular coming from Texas. Varieties include Hamlin, Marrs, & Pineapple oranges. My favorite being the Pineapple Orange. Its juice is thin and light, but very sweet. They do have a substantial amount of seeds, so remember they are juicing oranges. Again, with most citrus, pick fruit that is heavy for its size and firm. Keep juicing oranges at room temperature to yield the most juice. After squeezing refrigerate the juice right away unless you consume it all.
Juice oranges are available year-round if you include the Valencia orange in the mix.
