Jaffa oranges are characterized by their thick peel, oval shape, sweet flavor, and during Israel's early years, they were the country's primary agricultural export. The first mention of oranges in the Biblical land of Israel dates back to approximately 332 BC. At peak production in the 1970's, 1.7 million Jaffa oranges were grown for export here a year.
Barbara says, "It's not by chance that I'm launching this new design just as the orange season begins. This pattern brings the ripening fruit from the orchard in Israel to your kitchen. I put this apron on and I feel nostalgic. Whether I'm buying my fruit from the shuk in Jerusalem or in a supermarket in California, there is nothing as sweet as a Jaffa orange."
