According to citrus specialists of
the department of agriculture, it’s
usually the Florida and Texas or
anges that bear the stamp required
by law when color is added. Wide
variations in day and night temper
ature and the presence of iron in
the soil of California make the color
of the skin much deeper, and there
fore no help is needed to make the
western orange really “orange col
ored.” The Florida orange, how
ever, often reaches maturity while
the skin is still green, and to get
the traditional bright color, a spe
cial beauty treatment is required, so
