Large or small, these beautiful navels kick off the orange season with an explosion of sweet juicy flavor. Navels are universally considered the best oranges for eating out-of-hand because of their easy-to-peel rinds, juicy yet firm pulp, and an irresistibly sweet orange flavor. And they're seedless! Navel orange segments are healthy and fun kid foods for snacks and lunches, that pack and travel well. Peel the orange, then gently separate the fruit along the natural divisions. All Navel oranges have an opening at the blossom end of the fruit that resembles a belly button, hence the name Navel.
