It is the oldest Navel orange known in the Mediterranean Region. Among the oranges sold for fresh consumption, it is the most appreciated variety. It flourishes in all the Mediterranean Coast from Antalya to Hatay. These last years, new plantations of Navel oranges have been made.


The fruits are big, oblate rounded, with a typical navel at the end. The thick (5-7 mm) easily removed rind is dark orange and slightly rough. It has an excellent flavour, its taste being sweet but acid enough. This seedless variety is of easy slicing. It is a mid-season orange, convenient for storage and transportation.
