Which are the most juicy and tasty varieties that you grow?

Here is a good short documentary.

Im growing moro, sanguinelli, tarocco, and vaniglia sanguingo.  Intend to keep only one, not sure which yet.

I am growing the first three you listed.  Only the moro colors up at all and here on the upper Texas Gulf Coast it does so sporadically.  Some years a little better than others. Never like what you see in the store.   The sanguinelli & torocco taste fine but never have I picked one with any hint of color. (Even when picked into March) They all have been in the ground about 10 years. My biggest complaint is the habit of all 3 varieties to be severely alternate bearing.

Tarocco its the best orange i ever ate.A lot of juice,enough red color ( 40% of the fruit) ,verry sweet ,slightly sour and hard to peel but worths the effort because it has verry little pulp inside wich makes it easy to eat and cuts the biterness.
I have one small plant and i would grow only blood oranges but im not a citrus expert.
