Hello. I searched through the site but was unable to find an answer to this question. I also searched throughout the internet, likewise my search proved futile.
My dilemma is this: My boyfriend recently bought a navel orange from the grocery store. Upon peeling, he found his orange had turned (or been produced) about 3/4, well, purple. It was a purple orange. Unable to find any answers on the vast internet, I have turned to the straight dope.
What a coincidence! I just finished eating a blood orange I got from Harris Teeter. It tasted like a regular orange with a slight difference that I can’t explain. It was very pretty and very delicious, though.
