You should peel it.

There is more to it though, other than washing it, and “peeling it” I think I read someone “you don’t need to wash oranges since you’ll throw it out or something.

@flo My teeth are sensitive to cold. I warm the orange up with hot water for a few seconds before eating.

Check for worms.

@RedDeerGuy1 Ok, but I’m talking in general. By the way even if not from the fridge?

Take the seeds out? Can you elaborate more on what you mean please?
Peeling it and taking the seeds out is my answer.

Peeling and removing all the rind still on the orange. Every. Bit. Then eat. Sometimes I break the skin and eat the insides only, too. We eat them room temperature.

My family used to try to peal an orange in one piece. If you did your wish would be granted.
@flo Not usually. Only for cold oranges. I just had an orange, and I tried slicing them into disks. Was easier to eat.

It’s laborious.

@RedDeerGuy1 Slice them into “disks”? Into the shape of a CD or something like that?
@rebbel What is laborious?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@flo Yes. Easier to eat.

flo's avatar

Easier than by segments?

RedDeerGuy1's avatar

@flo I’m not sure. Maybe less overall effort.

If is it a Mandarin, Sweetie, or Clementine I roll it around byto separate the peel from the core.
It peels very nicely after you do that.
