I don't want crappy American oranges!

I want my Chilean oranges back. They were sweet, juicy, firm, wonderfully perfumed, the inside was a nice deep orange color, and they were so delicious. They made the whole house smell lake delectable oranges. Then the store ran out of them and brought in Sunkist oranges. So I bought those, hoping they'd be good. The insides are woody, pale, there is less juice, and the flavor is so dull and insipid. I'm tired of over-hybridized American fruit! I want real fruit!

I live in Germany. We get oranges from Italy and Spain.

Are oranges from Italy and Spain looking good and taste good? Does Germany get them from any other country?

@Marty1 They are good. It's possible that we also get fruit from Morocco.

I don't buy oranges because they all look so bad. Then I can't eat whole bag before experation date and singly they cost a dollar each! For an orange that looks terrible! I will eat something else instead!

I understand you perfectly well my friend. Those new kinds of oranges are totally tasteless.

What I miss is being able to grow my own oranges. When we lived in Glendale we had a tree that produced some of the best oranges I've ever eaten. Do they grow as well in Tucson as they do in the Phoenix metro area?
