Explore this page for tips on how to select, store and prepare oranges.
Look for oranges with shiny skins that feel firm and heavy for their size. Oranges with thin skins tend to be juicier than those with thick skins. Avoid buying oranges with bruised, wrinkled or discolored skins.
If the peel of an orange shows damage the inside may still be good. Cut or peel to see if it is still good before tossing.
Even if there are green places on the skin, oranges can still be ripe and good to eat.
