oranges and the color

readytoslurp | Jan 13, 201208:54 AM

Why is it that when I cut open some oranges, they have this pinkish tint and at first it does not seem right.. is this another type or orange? or is this an orange that had some genetic defect and should be called orange with a pinkish hue.. or orange that got its blush on?

Somehow it just seems wrong to open up an orange and see this color.. The flavor is ok but its interesting, I find myself not enjoying the orange so much because I expect it to be .... well..... ORANGE!!!
