At the grocery store, there was a sign labeled "mango blood orange" right by a bunch of what looked like clementines. There weren't any oranges or mangos in that section. Intrigued, I bought some of the clementine-looking fruit. They weren't expensive.

I just ate one. It looked like a fairly normal tangerine on the inside, with seeds. The flavor is somewhat different though, and I suppose one could call it slightly mango-ish. I wonder if any of the others have darker flesh, like a normal blood orange.

I did a web search on "mango blood orange", but didn't find any fruit by that name. That is curious.

Hmmm. It isn't April Fool's day yet, so it doesn't seem likely to have been a joke by a store employee.

The web-search did bring up a page which mentioned an avocado - mango - blood orange soup, which sounds good. Unfortunately, a recipe was not included.

However, I did find another tasty sounding dish with a recipe - Avocado, Mango, and Pineapple Salad with Pistachios and Pickled Shallots

I've seen "mango oranges" before, and they look and taste like you describe. Maybe blood orange was a misprint?
