A few years ago, a grower in a citrus orchard in Valencia discovered brown-coloured oranges on a navel tree. The fruit on all other trees had the usual orange colour. He decided to have the brown oranges analysed and the result was surprising. The brown-coloured oranges turned out to be better in quality and flavour than the other oranges.
This led to the decision to propagate this new variety through grafting to develop a new viable variety that was named "Navel Chocolate." The Navel Chocolate oranges have a sweeter taste than regular Navel oranges, have a lower acidity and are also juicier. In addition, they also have a longer shelf life, which makes this variety an exclusive top quality product.
The harvest of the variety starts in December, when the brown colour of the oranges is sufficiently developed and it lasts until mid-January. For more information about packaging, available sizes, prices and delivery terms of the Navel Chocolate oranges:
