Hi, my name is Cara Cara!

While I look like a regular Navel orange on the outside, I’m actually pink on the inside. My nickname is ‘The Power Orange®’ because I pack a nutritional punch with more Vitamin A and C than normal oranges.

I taste extremely sweet and have a tangy, cranberry-like zing. My great, great grandparents came to California from South America many years ago.

Fun Facts

  • Cara Cara Navel oranges have 20% more Vitamin C and nearly 30% more Vitamin A than regular Navel oranges.
  • I’m pink inside because of Lycopene, a nutrient you can find in pink or red fruits and vegetables (like tomatoes).
  • Oranges are one of the few fruits that will not over-ripen if left on the tree.
