Orange you glad it’s Friday?

The 1st and the 2nd equals Tacle

Come sunshine or rain, we’re definitely going through a cold spell and therefore stocking up on loads of vitamin C…in the form of orange fruit. I spotted tacle (I have no idea where the accent goes – tahCLEH? TAHcleh?) in the produce aisle and discovered that it’s a hybrid cross between a Monreal clementine and a Tarocco orange. Cultivated in southern Italy, the flesh is very juicy, sweet, and has no seeds.

    Citrus in the wintertime reminds me that summer is coming:-) I must see if this tacle is at our produce markets! Are cara cara oranges available where you are? They are one of my favorites.

      No they are not and I WANT! They sound absolutely delicious. Speaking of oranges, I am still waiting for the blood oranges to appear at the market.
