Whats wrong with these oranges?

They look good on the outside, smell great, and i took a small bite and they taste good, but what does this look like to you?

I think that's what it probably is. Sometimes they are much more red throughout, sometimes less. Sometimes just red bits in them. I guess it depends on the variety.

The colder the temps they are exposed to the darker the flesh is. I like them for cooking but they are usually not very sweet.

But it could be to late in the season and the variety you have should have been picked back in Dec. I posted about two weeks ago I had squeezed my last orange for this season. I still have a bunch on my trees, but they are Too Ripe and going bad. I am not a Citrus expert by any means in fact I know very little about Citrus. But they start picking Oranges in my area in late Nov.

If your eating humans, you are in fact a canibal. Makes no difference if your human steaks are raw or well done. Its species not the way it is prepared that matters. And yes I know you were joking, so am I.

Good point though, ok well I don't like my plate to look like a crime scene when I am done. I would have never guessed blood orange, never heard of that but I looked online and that is what they look like.
