Sliced Blood Orange

Zest Fest: The Flavors of Oranges

Peel open an orange and welcome a sweet, citrus scent that awakens your senses. Did you know that oranges are a hybrid of pomelos and mandarins? You can find oranges in Produce year-round, but not all varieties. During peak citrus season, we encourage you to try something new! Discover a new favorite snack or a great addition to your tried-and-true salad recipe.

Find these varieties of Oranges at your Heinen’s:

Florida Oranges

The climate that these oranges are grown in – hot & wet – lends to a juicier & sweet fruit. These are a standard for a reason!

Heritage Reserve Navel Oranges

Grown by our friends at LoBue Citrus in California’s renowned Central Valley citrus-growing region, these oranges taste just as they did 50+ years ago. That’s because the family has been producing them from the same trees for that amount of time. You can expect fruit that is juicy with sweet, fragrant and consistent flavor every time.

Cara Cara Oranges

This pink-fleshed orange has a complex berry and cranberry-laced flavor. Lower in acidity, they’re nutritious, delicious and beautiful!

Blood Oranges

These crimson-colored beauties have a deep-red, pulpy flesh. Their flavor is rich and tinged with hints of berry. While they’re slightly small compared to other oranges, they’re packed with a flavorful punch.

Heinen's Orange Juice Machine

While we’ve been juicing fresh orange juice in store since 1948, during Zest Fest we’ll create a limited edition blood orange juice. Available in pints the weekends of February 18-19 & February 25-26.

Let us know what you think of your orange adventure on social media using #ZestFest and #Heinens.
