The Instacart guide to orange products


About oranges

Originating in Southeast Asia, oranges have been around since ancient times. The word "orange" comes from the Sanskrit "naranga," which means fragrant. The orange began as a domestic fruit from a cross between a hybrid pomelo and a non-pure mandarin after its use spread to India. Spanish travelers were thought to bring the orange into America. In 1493, Christopher Columbus was thought to have planted the fruit in Hispanola. Spanish, Dutch, and Portuguese sailors planted these citrus trees along their routes to prevent scurvy.

Today, oranges are one of the most popular fruits around the world. In the United States, Florida and California are the largest orange producers, with 85% of its oranges produced used for juice. Orange juice is considered one of the healthiest beverages in the world due to its range of health benefits, which include improving circulation, boosting metabolism, and protecting against cancer. Packed with vitamin C and antioxidants, oranges are sweet and delicious, and you can use them in a variety of culinary dishes.

FAQs About Oranges

All citrus fruit will keep for a few days at room temperature, but the best way to store oranges is in the refrigerator. Keep them in the vegetable drawer, and they should last for several weeks. Don't put the fruit in a plastic bag or airtight container, since this can cause the fruit to get moldy. If you want to keep them contained, opt for a mesh bag so air can circulate around the fruit. For oranges that you want to use for juice, bring them back to room temperature as this will give you the most juice.

Yes, you can freeze oranges as long as you know that the texture changes when thawed. Freezing oranges is the perfect way to save them for later to make juice or add them to smoothies. To freeze them, peel the oranges and remove as much of the pith as possible. Divide each orange into segments, and place them into freezer-safe plastic bags or containers. They should keep for up to six months in the freezer.

Even if you're not planning to use the orange peel for any culinary dish, make sure you wash the orange before eating. Use an orange peeler or knife to remove the peel. Rolling the orange gently between your hands can loosen the peel and make it easier to remove.
