Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck

One of the top produced varieties in Brazil, it can be found year-round at farm markets and supermarkets. It has a smooth, thin peel, and elongated shape. The greener ones yield a sweeter juice. In addition to being eaten fresh, this sweet variety has several culinary uses: cakes, preserves, marmalades. Peeled and cut into wedges or slices, they are a traditional accompaniment for Feijoada (beans and meats stew).
