Navel Orange 1

Navel Oranges and Valencia oranges are similar in flavor and appearance, but what distinguishes one from the other? Oranges are one of the most commonly grown fruits in the world, and both Valencias and navels are categorized as “sweet oranges” of the genus Citrus x sinessis. From the outside, the main distinguishing characteristic that can help you tell them apart is the feature that gives navel oranges their name.
