The very sweetest orange and richest is the black or rusty coated fruit. Piek out the dingiest oranges in the box, and you will get the best. Another way to choose oranges is by weight. The heaviest are the best, because they have the thinnest. siin and more weight of jnice. Thick skinned oranges are apt to be dry. They either weigh less because of having so mach skin or because of thepoverty of the juice in these particular specimens A sligbt freezing on the tree causes this eondition in otherwise fine fruit. The "kid glove" orauges are the two varieties of small fruit grown in Florida from stocks respectively bronght from China and from Tangier They are called mandari'n and tangerine They may be eaten without 6oiling a kid glove, because the skin is loose and the little "gores, "or pockets of juice. come apart verycleanly and without breaking. All the above applies to Florida oranges The Jamaica and Havana oranges are much paler yellow, and their juice is usually of more acid quality than the home grown orauges.
