Navel Oranges 101...did you know?
In 1820, in a monastery garden in Bahia, Brazil, a hybrid of the Sweet Orange known as the Bahia Navel Orange was born. Brazil sent a dozen of these trees to the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington D.C. in 1870.
Mrs. Eliza Tibbetts of Riverside, CA wrote to the U.S.D.A. in 1873 asking for two of the new Navel oranges, never knowing that she would revolutionize the commercial Orange industry in California.
This new mutant bud stock called the Bahia Navel, was renamed the Riverside Navel, and then renamed again the Washington Navel after George Washington for a more national appeal. All new varieties of Navel Oranges can trace their roots back to the Washington Navel.
California Navel Oranges are (typically) seedless, have a thick, bright orange skin and are easy to peel. The sweet, tangy, and juicy flavored sections make for an excellent eating orange any time, any place.
So, as you can see, (from an historical point of view) California Navel Oranges are relatively new to the fresh fruit "scene", but oh how they have made a splash! So when you're ready for all the goodness California Navel Oranges have to offer, we hope you make Pearson Ranch your choice for your citrus needs.

A special note about making juice from NAVEL oranges: Due to a naturally occurring chemical in Navel oranges called limonin, orange juice made from Navel oranges is best served right away. Navel orange juice will turn bitter in just a few hours, even if refrigerated! So, go ahead, juice them up and drink to your heartís content, and then see if OJ made from Fresh Picked California Navel Oranges isnít just as delicious and satisfying as juice made from any other variety of Oranges.
Remember...you are PRE-ordering Navel Oranges for late fall delivery or as soon as they are ready!
