Description

‘Washington Navel’ oranges probably arrived in California from Brazil in 1873. Its growth is, as is typical for oranges, compact, its leaves are dark green with a narrow leaf lobe. The flowers show mainly in early summer and reach a size of 2-3 cm. They are white and intensely fragrant. Characteristic for the about 10 cm large ‘Washington Navel’ fruit is its ‘navel’ at the base of the fruit. It is formed by a small secondary fruit that is embedded into the larger fruit. If you cut the fruit open, you can see this 'daughter fruit' as a whole circle of fruit segments. ‘Washington Navel’ oranges are seedless and easy to peel. The fruit segments can be easily separated from each other, making them very popular for direct consumption. In addition, they have a well-balanced sugar-acid ratio. Like all oranges, ‘Washington Navel’ have no problems with cooler temperatures and can be placed outside from April to October, which keeps them vigorous and pest-free.
