Just like the rest of the varieties in the Navel group, the fruit has a navel, although it is not particularly prominent. The fruit is large and round or slightly oval in shape and does not have seeds. The pulp is very juicy and the peel has a vivid orange colour.
A mutation of the Early Navel variety to have originated in California. A medium-sized tree with a roughly rounded shape and very dark leaves. No thorns. Flowers without pollen.
This variety is the most resistant to cold and lime, and is usually de-greened so that it can be harvested earlier. It bears fruit quickly and abundantly, and is one of the most cultivated strains.
It is of high quality for fresh consumption. Vulnerable to creasing. May tend towards alternate harvests. Suitable variety for all citrus-growing regions, but especially those with a greater risk of frost and there is an interest in a earlier harvest.
