Fruit is of similar size as the Newhall variety and has a navel. Pleasant, sweet taste; unlike other varieties, does not taste “off” when consumed at the end of the ripening period. Low limonin content.
Mutation of the Washington variety to have originated in Australia.
Late to mature and fruit remains on trees until the end of June. Good and constant production. May be an interesting variety for prolonging the harvest period for Navel group oranges. Fruit does not drop from the peduncle once ripe, although it does not cling as firmly as the Barnfield, Chislett, Powell or Rohde varieties.
