tarocco oranges with beetroot

At the foot of the Etna grow the best oranges in the world, Tarocco, Moro and Navel. The Tarocco is a half-blood orange, juicy and delicate, with a balanced sugar/acid ratio and a very aromatic flesh. It’s called half-blood because the fruit flesh isn’t as red as the other blood oranges. The colour is influenced by the temperature fluctuations in the night, because all blood oranges need night frost to develop their beautiful red colour.
