Questions and Answers

    Explanation
    Anthocyanins are pigments that give plants, fruits, and vegetables their red, purple, or blue colors. In the case of citrus fruits, the distinctive dark flesh color is due to the presence of anthocyanins. These pigments are synthesized in the fruit's peel and accumulate in the flesh as the fruit ripens. Anthocyanins not only contribute to the visual appeal of citrus fruits but also have antioxidant properties that are beneficial for human health.

    C. Oranges
    Explanation
    Oranges have a tough and hard-to-peel skin compared to other fruits. This is because oranges have a thicker outer layer called the peel, which is rich in pectin and protects the fruit inside. The peel of an orange is often difficult to remove due to its fibrous texture and adherence to the fruit. In contrast, many other fruits have thinner and more easily peelable skins.

The Mediterranean climate, with its warm days and cool nights, is ideal for the growth of blood oranges.
