Navel oranges are medium to large in size with the trademark “navel” or circular hole on the blossom stem end. The medium-thick skin matures from green to bright orange and is smooth with a pebbled texture due to oil glands found across the surface. Underneath the outer layer of the skin, the white pith clings to the flesh, but is easily peeled and has a spongy texture. The pale yellow-orange flesh is juicy, tender, seedless, and divided into 10-12 segments by thin membranes. Navel oranges are aromatic, sweet, and contain a low-acidity which produces a balanced level of sweet, tangy, and tart flavors. Navel oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and thiamin and also contain potassium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, and calcium.
