Bio Tarocco Blood Oranges
Tarocco Sicilian blood oranges have organic certification. It is a fruit with an intense flavour and a perfect balance between sweetness and acidity. The genuine Tarocco from Francofonte has organoleptic properties, a unique scent and unique taste, thanks to the special features of the terrain and the local micro-climate created by Mt. Etna. The typical red pigmentation first appears in the month of January, due to this local micro-climate. At other times of the year, the pulp of Tarocco has a tendency to be light yellow in colour.
NB: in December, the pulp of the Tarocco is basically blond; the typical red pigmentation will begin at the beginning of January thanks to the marked temperature range.
