This jam is an eccentric ‘creamsicle': Cara Cara Orange + Vanilla Bean. It may not seem like that strange of a fruit or marmalade, yet the first Cara Cara was discovered at the Hacienda Caracara in Valencia, Venezuela in 1976 and is believed to have developed as a spontaneous bud mutation on a Washington naval orange tree. The Cara Cara is a mutation that botanists call bud sport. In botany, a bud sport is a part of a plant that shows morphological differences from the rest of the plant. The cause for these fantastic freaks is generally thought to be a chance genetic
mutation.

So thank your lucky stars that a Navel orange tree in Venezuela got a little freaky back in 1976, or else we wouldn't have been able to fold organic vanilla bean into these complex floral-forward beauties from Rancho Del Sol farms, and deliver it to you in a little glass jar.
