One of the things I appreciate about Italy is that Italians tend to eat produce that is in season. Not only do you avoid eating produce that has travelled halfway around the world, but you can get produce that is fresher, cheaper and just tastes better. It's also a good opportunity to try new and different fruits and vegetables.
I first tasted the Tarocco blood orange a few weeks ago and was instantly hooked. They are mostly sweet and juicy. And I love the red color! With these oranges in season, we like to start the day with a glass of fresh squeezed juice. So goooood. That's a good reason to get out of bed, at least until the season ends.
