Cara Cara Oranges are also known as red navel oranges. They have a bright orange peel and pink-raspberry colored flesh. They are very juicy and sweet with a low acid profile. Cara Caras are great when eaten right off the tree, but also are very popular with chefs.
A Cara Cara Orange is the result of the cross-pollination of a Washington Navel Orange and a Brazilian Bahia Navel Orange. Once the orange blossoms are pollinated, medium-sized oranges with red to pink flesh and an incredibly sweet citrus flavor are created.
The main difference between a Cara Cara Orange and a Navel Orange is that the Cara Cara is an all-natural hybrid orange, along with the red-pink color inside resembling a grapefruit.
Cara Cara Oranges, also known as ‘Red Fleshed Navel Oranges’, are a recent discovery in the world of citrus. They were discovered in 1976 in Venezuela, but didn’t make their way to US markets until the 1980s and were only sold in select markets.
