Temple Oranges - A Springtime Favorite

Temple oranges were introduced into Florida in the 19th century, most likely from Jamaica, and have been cultivated commercially since the early 20th century. The Temple is a hybrid of the mandarin orange and the sweet orange. They are available in January and February.

Bright in color, they are juicy and sweet. While easy to peel, the thickness of the rind makes it great for zesting.Temples are great for eating out of the hand, or for compotes and preserves.

As with other citrus varieties, the Temple orange is high in Vitamin C and is fat, sodium and cholesterol-free. They can be stored at a cool room temperature for one or two days and in the refrigerator, away from vegetables, for up to two weeks.
