Valencia Oranges are a summer variety. They are spectacularly juicy and while not as pretty as the winter navels are great for seasonings, marinades and juices.
Valencias often have a greenish colouring to their skins. This is natures way of protecting the fruit from our harsh summer sun. Larger stores often import navel oranges through summer as they are considered to be more attractive to customers because of their uniform colour. We don’t sell imported fruit and instead prefer to support the farmers of the Mildura regions (and others) who supply Australia with these high quality – if a little green – oranges.
