The winter orange

Orange tree

The Orange Estates area of Downey is living up to its name right now. All of the orange trees are covered with oranges that are just getting sweeter and more orange every day.

February, March, and April are the peak season for the California navel orange, when the oranges are at their sweetest. According to Produce Pete, look for oranges that are shiny and heavy in the hand.
