Orange Juice

Orange juice refers to the juice of oranges. It is made by extraction from the fresh fruit, by desiccation and subsequent reconstitution of dried juice, or by concentration of the juice and the subsequent addition of water to the concentrate. In American English, the slang term O.J. may also be used to refer to orange juice.

Due to the importance of oranges to the economy of the state of Florida, "the juice obtained from mature oranges of the species Citrus sinensis and hybrids thereof" was adopted as the official beverage of Florida in 1967.

    the great orange bed where we lie
    like two frozen paintings in a field of poppies.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    It is not all bad, this getting old, ripening. After the fruit has got its growth it should juice up and mellow. God forbid I should live long enough to ferment and rot and fall to the ground in a squash.
