My answer: peel, pulp, seeds, assorted vitamins and those little annoying stickers with the price code.
Alas this bag of oranges that I purchased on Thursday came with a label:
To maintain freshness, coated with foodgrade vegetable, beeswax and/or shellacbased wax or resin. May be we treated with oneor more of the following: Thiabendazol,Ortho phenylphenol, Imassali , Fludioxoniland/or Pyrimerthanil.
I'd just as soon go without oranges, than buy oranges that come from so far away (ie South Africa) that they must be coated with dyes and waxes and one or more anti-fungicides in order to reach my kitchen table before spoiling.
We're not sure what to do with these oranges. Thinking about all the chemicals on the oranges' porous skin makes me nauseous. However it seems like a waste to throw them away. I might toss them in the compost heap, but I'm not sure they'll even decompose.
