A Sanguinelli blood orange was found as a natural mutation growing on a doblafina blood orange tree. The doblafina blood orange was once the primary blood orange variety of European markets. However, with its numerous seeds, low juice content and other undesirable characteristics it has lost its popularity and has been replaced by the Sanguinelli blood orange.
The Sanguinelli blood orange is a pedigree from the rich citrus growing regions of Spain. It is a hybrid variety that evolved from unknown parentage. Growing regions and climate play a critical factor in the intensity of the flesh's color and the level of pigmentation that occurs in the skin. Large temperature fluctuations, hot days and cold nights, provide for the intensely colored blood oranges.
