Orteat’s Organic Navel Oranges
Excellent to eat sliced or freshly squeezed, rich in vitamins, simply good: our Navel Oranges are an excellent panacea for our organism… the mouth feels fantastic with its freshness!
This type of citrus fruit belongs to the Washington variety of blonde navel oranges, whose name comes from a small scar that resembles the navel one. This mark is due to the phenomenon of “syncarpia” (the presence of several fruits in one), which leads to the growth of a second, smaller fruit. Organic Navel Oranges are also characterized by the absence of seeds, and this makes them particularly suitable for children.
The Italian Organic Navel Oranges that you can find on our website, depending on the weather, start to ripen at the end of October and can be harvested until late April. They are grown in places with a hot and dry climate, such as the one of the Ionian coast of Calabria. In this magical setting, the south-east exposure and proximity to both the sea and the mountains create a perfect and unique microclimate. Together with the alluvial soil, this type of environment guarantees the production of delicious citrus fruits that have an excellent quality.
Beyond that, our untreated oranges are grown in open fields by means of organic farming practices that do not employ any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Even during the harvesting, which is strictly manually done, the fruits are not subjected to any treatments, either with wax or with anti-mold.
Hence their peel may not appear ‘perfect’ , but it can be definitely used for cooking to enjoy its flavor. Indeed, our producers operate by fully respecting nature, by using only manure coming from natural sources. In some cases it is also possible to use ‘green manure’: some residues and herbaceous species are buried into the soil in order to both maintain it and improve its fertility.
