. . . or citrus yellow . . .  there was a movie almost half a century ago that intrigued me as a teenager, and the phrase has stuck.  But this post is about those tanker that call in the sixth boro with orange juice.  Click here to learn more about the Brazilian orange juice industry.    It made my morning Tuesday to catch Orange Sun leaving, after nearly a week in Port Newark at a facility I’d love to visit.  And I do have something I’m curious about.

Orange Sun came here from Santos, Brasil.  Right now it’s speeding to Tampa before –I think–heading back to Brasil.  Here‘s a couple months of itinerary.  My question . . . why would it stop at a port in our domestic orange state before traveling back to the Brasilian orange state?
