The fruit ranges from blunt pointed to an ovate shape, is orange coloured and with no aureole. It always has a visible navel, is seedless and is a fruit of great quality. As it does not contain limonine, it does not develop the characteristically bitter taste found in other Navel varieties. The fruit peel is thin-skinned, with visible essential oil glands and a moderately sticky pulp.

Selection & Storage:

Oranges can be stored at cool temperature for a day or two, but then should be stored in the refrigerator crisper or drawer, away from vegetables for up to two weeks. Select oranges that are well-formed, firm and heavy for their size with a smooth skin surface. Tan or brown speckling on their skin, known as "russeting" does not affect the eating quality.

Usage Tips:

If Powell Navel is stored in the refrigerator, take it out and leave it at room temperature to increase its flavour before eating. Wash oranges thoroughly before cutting.
