Washington Navel Oranges - One 30 lbs. case (Available Jan. - Mar. in CA, AZ, NV, OR, and WA)
The Washington navel is the classic California navel orange. It is the gold standard when it comes to California citrus. It peels easily when fully mature, is bright orange and the flesh is richly flavored and sweet with a good balance of sugar and acidity. It is seedless and separates into easy-to-eat segments. The Washington navel is a superlative dessert orange.
What makes Marian Farms oranges unique? Marian Farms successfully grows their oranges using biodynamic agricultural practices and by hand picking their oranges at peak ripeness when they are at their sweetest, ensuring that the customer will receive a great tasting orange. Marian Farms oranges are also unique in that they are never treated with gibberellic acid, as are most oranges, both organic and conventional. (Gibberellic acid is a commercially produced plant growth hormone which is sprayed on oranges to extend their tree and shelf life.)
We ship 30 Lbs. cases of fresh Washington navel oranges directly from the farm to you, to California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington states only. Our oranges are grown on heritage heirloom rootstock.
Serving Suggestions for Oranges:
- For the best nutritional value and taste, juice only enough navel oranges to drink and enjoy right away.
- Oranges are healthy and fun kid foods. They are great as snacks and in lunch boxes as they pack and travel well. Peel the orange, then gently separate the fruit along the natural divisions.
- Try this guilt-free treat: cut navel orange segments into low or nonfat chocolate yogurt. Toss some navel orange sections on your favorite green salad, or enjoy on cereal, pancakes or waffles.
Marian Farms also grows Improved Meyer Lemons. The Meyer is an unknown cross between a lemon and an orange or mandarin. It is thinner skinned, sweeter and less acidic than the traditional Eureka lemon. Meyer lemons are fabulous in desserts making the best tarts and curds. Marian Farms Meyers are big, juicy and bursting with flavor.
