Attention, everyone: blood orange season is upon us, and it's not going to last long.

From the outside, they look like normal oranges (sometimes with a reddish tint). Inside, though, blood oranges are bright red slices of sweet happiness. They're one of my favorite fruits, and sadly, the window of time when they're available in Memphis is very small.

So far, I've spotted blood oranges at Whole Foods on Poplar for $2.99 /lb. Have you seen them anywhere else?


  • Finally!
    Time to make a blood orange hefeweizen for the coming spring season!

  • Trader Joe’s but I don’t know if chain of stores goes as far as Memphis.

  • I don't live in Memphis, I am from Chicago. I have found Blood Oranges in 2 different local grocery stores as well as Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I've gotten lucky :)
