Sanguine

It is a variety of orange (Citrus × sinensis) with crimson colour. The fruit is smaller than an average orange. The flesh is usually without kernel, but it can also contain one. The distinctive dark colour of the flesh is due to the presence of anthocyanin, a family of antioxidant pigments common to many flowers and fruit, but uncommon in citrus. The flesh develops its characteristic brown color when the fruit becomes larger in low temperatures during the night. Sometimes there is dark colouring on the outside of the peel, depending on the variety of sanguine. The peel can be tougher and harder to be peeled than other oranges.
