It is the end of the season of small oranges, and the season of nectarines has not begun; however Valencias, the one true reliable orange, are starting to appear, and they're as sweet and juicy, and unlike Naval oranges cannot double as cannon-balls when your ammunition is running low.

I'm sorry if this wasn't meant to be a conversation about oranges.

Apologising to the porcelain orange

You can keep your sodding Navels:
 They scarcely count as food.
You can even keep your Jaffas:
 Valencias are good.

Sevilles and Minneolas
 Are somewhat less than fruit
Compared to God's own orange:
 Valencias sind gut.

The mandarins and tangerines
 And clementines and then
The blasted blood orange: what rot!
 Valencias están bien.
