Navel Organic Oranges

The Navel orange is characterized by having a blossom end reminiscent of a human navel, which is actually a small or underdeveloped fruit inside. This variety originated in Brazil in the 19th century.
Its flavour is immensely sweet, somewhat acidic with a very subtle touch of bitterness that make it the orange preferred by the great majority of consumers.
It is round in shape, seedless and is easy to peel. With its intense colour, it keeps well, and boasts flavour, texture and a host of other characteristics, make it undoubtedly the best variety of oranges along with the Navel Lane Late.
The months of December, January and February are perfect for enjoying Navel oranges, which offer antioxidants and multiple vitamins and minerals.
