This seedless orange is sweet and juicy and ripens in the early part of the citrus season. The navel orange grows a miniature “twin” that develops under the peeling of the orange at its base (opposite the stem). From the outside, it resembles the human navel.
This fruit has a bright orange rind that is thick and rough. A cross between a tangerine and an orange, temple oranges have a lot of seeds and are easy to peel. Because of their thick rind, they are a good choice for zesting.
