This fruit which is easily available in the markets tops the health chart among other home-grown fruits. It is the largest citrus fruit in the world and its juice is the most popular in the country. An amazing fact is that being resistant to diseases it is killed more due to lightning. It is a hybrid between pomelo and mandarin. The orange originated in the region around south China, north India, and Myanmar.
The availability of oranges in different parts of the country varies by region. In the north, the orange season is from December to February; in the South, the season lasts longer from October through March. Central and western India’s season is November through January and March through May. Oranges taste acidic, sour, sweet, juicy, and hydrating. These fruits are not subtle like apples or pears: Even the subtlest oranges offer a one-two punch to the taste buds. Oranges deserve their reputation as liquid sunshine, given their energizing taste.

Storage and Uses
Depending on their end use, sweet oranges can be cut in a variety of ways. If eating out of hand, simply peel the fruit and separate the slices, or cut the fruit into slices with the skin intact, and eat the flesh from the skin. The skin has a very bitter taste although it can be eaten. But be careful of its bitter taste and chemical residues if any. Also, the skin of an orange can be hard to digest. To cut delicate orange slices free of pith or membrane, first skin the orange. Use a straight-edge utility knife or a sharp paring knife. Lop off both ends of the fruit, and stand it upright on the cutting board. Then, cut away equal-sized pieces of the skin, similar to the method of shaving a pineapple. Remove any white pith remaining on the orange. Next, cut into the fruit along its membrane, and slice away wedges of fruit
