Valencia oranges are reputed for their exceptional juice. Medium to large in size, this orange has a thin easy-to-peel smooth deep orange colored rind. Slightly more acidic than the navel orange, it has only a few seeds. Valencia oranges continue to ripen after harvest; the longer this popular orange ripens, the sweeter the taste.
