The Navel, our only variety bold enough to bare its midriff, is justifiably confident. A world favorite, the Florida navel orange is easy to peel and seedless, contains an incredible sweetness coupled with just the right amount of tang, and offers a day's dose of vitamin C. Its natural goodness and packaging make it a healthful grab 'n' go snack. Citrus trivia side note: the Navel's "inny" is actually caused by a baby orange within the fruit. Now how cute is that?

True story: When our farmer and his wife were newlyweds, he always served her the bottom half of the grapefruit at breakfast. "It's sweeter," he'd explain, and they'd sit down to discuss the merits of bottom half vs. top. The top was like the bottom, but with a tad bit more tang. Twenty some years later, they've ended the debate. Now, they each enjoy a whole grapefruit. So can you. With Indian River Grapefruit, you can halve your fruit and eat it, too.
