The Navelina Orange
The Navelina orange is an early variety of Orange, since it is generally harvested starting from the end of November and is part of the larger Navel group.
Navel, the translation of the Italian “ombelico”, refers to the presence of a navel, due to a phenomenon of syncarps, that is the formation of a second fruit within the main fruit, a twin fruit.
The skin, orange-yellow, with a tendency to reddish at the end of winter, is thick and hard. The pulp is uniformly yellow in colour, with a fine and firm texture, apyrene (without seeds), appreciated for its low acidity which enhances juice sweetness, typically yellow and therefore suitable for younger children.
Our Navelina oranges are not treated with packaging chemicals, such as wax or anti-rot.

Outside of Italy, delivery time can vary between 3 and 5 working days, depending on the country.
We pick and select our citrus fruits straight from our Melilli farm (in the province of Syracuse), in order to always offer you fresh products.

Our oranges are not treated, so don't let months pass before eating them!
We recommend you to keep the oranges in a cool place (the fridge is fine, but the terrace is better) not stacking them one on top of the other so as not to damage them.
