I mentioned Cara Cara blood oranges to someone and she corrected me, saying they aren't blood oranges. Googling around, I find she's right. They're supposedly a type of navel orange, although they have no discernible navel that I can see. They have beautiful dark red flesh. Does anyone know why they aren't classified as blood oranges?
