‘Table’ Oranges
The orange is one of the world’s most popular and beneficial fruits. It has a high vitamin C content. Its flavour, especially that of some varieties, is really magnificent due to sweetness and sourness. Uruguay’s climate and soils are suited to grow oranges of excellent quality that are sold in the best world markets.
