Navel oranges are aromatic, sweet, and contain a low-acidity which produces a balanced level of sweet, tangy, and tart flavors.
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 an excellent source of vitamin C, dietary fiber, and thiamin and also contain potassium, vitamin A, beta-carotene, and calcium.
