Organic Bulk Navel Orange

Product Description: Many orange varieties exist for consumers to enjoy and the industry is constantly trying to produce new and exciting varieties to meet consumer demands and needs. The main varieties of oranges are: Summer Navel (Lane Late, Barnfield and Wilson), Valencia (Valencia), and Winter Navel (Washington, Navelina and Leng). 38% of the orange area is planted to Winter Navels, 45% to Valencia and 17% to Summer Navels. (ref: PIRSA Horticulture)

All oranges should be plump and juicy!

"Oranges Navel" ? sweet, juicy and full of zest. Usually seedless, they are easy to peel and ideal as a healthy snack at any time of the day.

Navel and Navelina are seedless oranges that take their names from the Navel protuberance at the end, which contains a tiny embryonic fruit. They have thick, pebbly skins and very sweet juicy flesh. The skin is particularly good for making preserves or as candied peel.

The Navel oranges thrive in such subtropical climates as the Mediterranean, and grown extensively in Spain, Morocco, Turkey, South Africa, Australia, California, Florida, Uruguay, Brazil, and Argentina. It was certainly the Brazilian Navel orange called Bahia that was introduced to the US in 1870 to fill the need for a good early variety. Navels are seedless and propagate by cuttings and were imported by the USDA in Washington, who distributed them to growers in Florida and California, and thus acquiring the name of Washington Navel.

Oranges Navel Available: June to October

Valencias ? deliciously sweet and juicy, used for juicing as well as eating. Valencia is the most important commercial variety in the world, living up to its nickname of the ?King of Juice Oranges?. Valencia accounts for 50% of the total Florida fruit crop and the principal variety used for processing into juice.

The Valencia originated in China and was taken to Europe by Portuguese or Spanish voyagers. The Valencia is perfect for the tropics, even though colour development may vary when the weather is hot. It has a thin and slightly pebbly rind. The flesh is bright orange and extremely juicy and nearly seedless. Valencia is a late orange, which has a smooth, thin skin, and contains few if any seeds, pale flesh, a sharp flavour, and is very juicy.
