I have a question...



How do you pick out oranges/tangerines/clementines that are sweet instead of bitter?

  1. Such a good question. I'm going to watch your comments to find out, because I don't know. Our grocery store always has samples of the oranges next to the produce, so I taste them first.

  3. i don't know the 'technical' way, but for me I usually try and pick orange that feels like the peeling is a little thick ('cause then they are also easy to peal), the tangerines that are just getting soft, and clementines...i haven't figured that one out yet.

    i agree that it's hard to miss at costco. their produce is almost always great.

  4. I try to look for "navel" oranges; they are usually sweeter I find. When I get bitter oranges, I just make Greg eat them (he will eat anything!!).

  6. You know the hole at the top that looks like a belly button of sorts? Well, the bigger that is, the sweeter the fruit. Simple, yeah?
