Dekopon oranges, botanically classified as Citrus reticulata, are a Japanese hybrid variety belonging to the Rutaceae family. The fruits are a large varietal, averaging 8 to 10 centimeters in diameter, and have a round, oval, to oblate shape with a characteristic protruding furrowed neck. Dekopon oranges release a fragrant aroma when peeled, expelling essential oils through the pores on the surface. The flesh is known for having high sugar content, ranging from 13 to 18 degrees Brix. This high sugar is mixed with low acidity, containing less than 1 percent citric acid, to create a rich and sweet flavor without the zesty, tangy nuances commonly found in other orange varieties.
