Super sweet, seedless, and juicy Gisborne Navel oranges.
Not all oranges are created equal...
Our Navel oranges are picked fresh every week by our Gisborne growers.
They are super sweet, seedless, and juicy.
The Gisborne climate has a mix of sunny warm days and cool nights making it the perfect place to grow the best oranges in NZ.
Approximately 4 oranges per kg.
Our oranges store well at room temperature out of direct sunlight for a week.
If you want them to last longer, pop them in the fridge.
Ever wonder how the Navel orange got its name? There’s no fancy origin story for this variety of citrus, it’s named purely for its belly button! In reality, this ‘navel’ is a tiny second orange that forms opposite the stem but never develops. You can see this mini twin when you remove the peel.
The Navel orange was a random gift from mother nature. A regular orange tree planted in Brazil in 1820 developed a mutation, resulting in the formation of two oranges within a single fruit. This lucky mutation is the reason Navel oranges are seedless.
Without seeds, the growers of the Navel orange had to get creative and propagate more trees.
All Navel oranges are direct descendants of this single genetic anomaly, including our delicious oranges.
