If you're looking for a fruit with a bit more drama, you could do worse than to sample the blood orange. This is a citrus with attitude, looking for all the world like Bela Lugosi got there and had a bite before you. The shock when your orange skinned beauty sheds its covering to reveal a heart of pure crimson flesh is very theatrical. On the taste front it's close to its normal interior neighbour, but the look is all pure murderous intent.

If you want to unleash some of the red stuff on unsuspecting friends, you could try juicing it to add a claret coloured twist on familiar cocktails - blood orange screwdriver anyone? Add a coulis of pure plasma to sauce your valentine's eve dessert to get to the heart of your relationship - you can't go far wrong.
