Oranges


While probably not significant to readers from outside Asia, to see orange coloured oranges in Vietnam is a rarity. The majority have a dark green skin which makes identifying whether they are ripe or not very difficult. No problem with these babies though

Ah yes, in Tahiti oranges were usually greenish with a tiny tinge of orange, even when they were ripe. No way we would get bright orange ones there either. Thanks for the insight!

Oranges in NYC are bright orange. It's good to have a nice big Florida orange!

I heard that many oranges in the US and I'd guess other Western countries are not very orange in color. They have dye injected into the skin before shipping to grocery stores to conform to consumers' preferences.
