Under the brands Pretty in Pink (German-speaking countries) and La Vie en Rose (France) a special kind of orange is packed: The Cara-Cara orange.

Discovered on the finca of the same name in Venezuela, the relatively young variety stands out due to its pink flesh and surprises one with a special bouquet of roses, cherries and blackberries - such an exotic combination is unique in the world of citrus fruits.

In Spain small quantities of it started to be planted and over the years a distinguished fan club has come into being.

Apart from vitamins C and A the Cara-Cara contains the phytochemical lycopene, which is responsible for the peculiar colouring of the pulp.
