Washington Navel

The large exceptionally delicious round seedless fruits are rich in flavour and have a slightly pebbled
orange rind that is easily peeled. Early in maturity, 10 mths, at its best in the late autumn to winter
months, but will hold on the tree for several months beyond maturity and stores well. The fruit was
medium yellow and had a thick rind that came off easily. The segments are seedless, loose, very juicy and
very sweet. The sugar to acid balance was on the sugary side but had enough acids to make a pleasing
citrus flavour. The texture was firm but melting. All in all one of the best oranges to eat fresh.
