Tangerine (Blood) Orange

If it was possible for the sun to emerge from the floor I think it would look something like this.

The luminosity of this orange simply glows up at you. I took delivery today of some Sicilian Blood Oranges to make marmalade with and they also shared a similar hue. The depth of orange here is unique – sometimes orange has too much white mixed in (think easy jet) and this gives it a flat feeling; as if the colour is resting on a plastic surface – but this is something different…a matt wool yet emitting a depth and transparency. bring a burst of Indian colour into your living room……..

Thanks to Mr T for India pictures.
