Luang Prabang Oranges

Here are some of the smallest, tastiest oranges that we've ever encountered. They come from Luang Prabang Province in the north of Laos. They have to be cut from the tree leaving part of the stem because if they are picked in the normal way, the skin of the orange breaks open and exposes the fruit. So they always appear in the market with leaves and a bit of stem.

You can easily fit one whole orange in your mouth at once. They taste so good that you'll eat more than one at a sitting.
