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?

Let your show begin!
