You all seem to know a bit about apples (I believe I bought Honeycrisps cause I remember someone or multiple talking about them on here, and whomever you are, I will bear your children. ALL OF YOU) but what are some good brands or whatever of oranges? I just ate a bad one (navel) and it was really, really depressing.
    Despite what you may think, this is an important thread. The terrorists could use scurvy next! We must remain sober and vigilant!

You're just mad because Colbert does O'Reilly even better than O'Reilly does O'Reilly.

I noticed that at the very beginning, too, but he doesn't really seem to have that problem anymore. Also: "The Word?" Best. Three to five minutes. On Television. Ever.


So Clementines, huh?

Yes. I eat them with appalling frequency this time of year. I think it's a cross between a mandarin orange and a plain ol' orange, but they kind of tate like apricots so I don't know.

yeah, i highly recommend blood oranges and clementines, maybe satsumas, although i don't really care for those that much.  i don't know why the navel you had was so gross, though.  navels are generally AWESOME.

also, this may just be my prejuidice, but if you can afford it, buy organic, because they taste A LOT better.  i think, at least.

firstly. anything i talk about on this topic is organic.
organics are my business and my life.

secondly. this is citrus season so options abound.

nextly. R2's top ten citruses ever(in no particular order)


1. clementines: sweet, juicy and easy to peel. a little bland for my taste but very popular.

2. satsumas: another mandarin similiar to clementines. just as easy to peel with a little more complex flavor profile. a bit more on the tangy side. look for the johanson label out of california!

3. texas rio star grapefruit: OMG! the best grapefruit on the fucking planet! if a piece of fruit can change your life, this is the lone. nuff said.

4. navel oranges: seedless, sweet and juicy. this should be the best time to buy them. quality usually peaks around christmas.

5. valencias: a juice orange. not much available of any decent quality in the winter. whatever.

6. pixie tangerines: my favorite citrus of all time. you can't peel them. you need to quarter them and just suck the juice out. so god damned good. try to find the ones from beck, they grow biodynamically!

7. minneola tangelos: a cross between a tangerine and a grapfruit. look for the little know at the stem end.

8. cara cara oranges: basically a red navel but so good.

9. blood oranges: probably not great yet. but come january they should be in top form. nothing like a fresh pitcher of blood orange juice with your favorite person.

10. meyer lemons: a cross between a lemon and an orange. the most remarkable lemonaid you have ever dreamed of.

i could go on and on.

don't even talk to me about stone fruit.

I always thought an orange would be a good thing to throw at someone.

werd, r2.  technically, i suppose, organics are my business as well, but probably in a different way than you're talking about.

anyway, that list was AWESOME, and i'll second the texas rio star recommendation, OMG.  i don't like grapefruit, but i LOVE those goddamned things.

Also, if you have an ice cream maker, meyer lemons make sherbert for which there are no words. We discovered this at my house just the other night, in fact.
