The Navel orange is a medium size orange variety with a smooth but pebbled skin that clings to the pulp. The trademark "navel" at its budding end is due to a genetic mutation where a secondary orange grows within the larger fruit. Its translucent yellow-orange segmented flesh is seedless and rich with sweet juices.
Navel oranges are typically available winter through spring.
Navel oranges are botanically known as Citrus sinensis and have over 50 different varieties. The most common and important variety is the Washington Navel orange. The Washington navel provides parentage to most of the navel varieties available in the commercial and non-commercial citrus landscape. There is only one surviving original parent Washington navel tree still producing fruit today in Riverside, California.
