Murcian Oranges

A late season fruit, this is a very sweet variety, used for juice extraction.  Not like Seville oranges which are bitter and used for sauces or marmalade.  Oranges are native to Asia, introduced to Spain by the Moors who developed the irrigation systems to cultivate them.  It takes about 3 oranges to fill a glass.
