I thought for a moment I had accidentally gotten grape fruit, but they didn't really look like grapefruit either. They are Cara Caras, a South American navel similar to an orange. The flesh is a nice red color. They have a mild taste, just barely citrus-y. They have a very low acid content and you can tell the difference. It's like eating an light orange. They were really good and we both enjoyed them so I thought I would share them with you.
