UPDATE: California Navel Oranges

October 25, 2018

The California Navel orange harvest has begun. Fruit will have a deeper orange color and fewer seeds than the California Valencia variety.

  • California Navels are available now; quality is very good
    • Sugar levels are on the low side, ranging from 9 to 10 Brix, which is typical to start the season
    • Fruit is being placed in gas rooms for three to five days to enhance color
  • Florida and Texas oranges are also available
