Oro Blanco (Spanish for white gold), have a bright green exterior early in the season. Some say green is good, but we like them better as the season progresses and green turns to golden yellow. In either case the Oro Blanco is ripe, sweet, and ready to eat from October through April. Oro Blancos are bigger than a medium sized grapefruit, generally round to flat round, with a rind up to ½ inch thick. The most notable characteristic of an Oro Blanco is the flavor. It’s sweet and the flesh lacks the bitterness sometimes associated with grapefruit. Some people describe the flavor as a grapefruit with the sugar already added.
