Are Green Colored Valencia Oranges perfectly ripe?
Valencia oranges sometimes endure a natural process called "regreening" in late spring and summer and
it occurs when the fruit is left on the tree during the summer months.
So Valencia Oranges go through a regreening process, which is when the fruit reabsorbs chlorophyll giving it hues of green even though the fruit is fully ripe.
In this process, warm temperature causes a pigment called chlorophyll to return to the orange's skin which causes the greenish tint.
Regreening does not affect the flavor of the orange.
The color of skin has no effect on the sweetness or quality of the orange.
And hence when ripe, Valencia oranges have a balanced, sweet-tart flavor.
That's why the world's most important commercial variety, Valencia oranges are often called summer oranges.
So, don’t be deterred if you see a tinge of green on Valencia oranges—it doesn’t mean that the fruit is unripe.
