Fruit is flat and oval, orange in colour without an aureole but always with a naval. The fruit is seedless and is of high quality.
Spontaneous mutation of the Washington Navel, discovered by Neil and Joyce Powell in Australia in 1982.
Juice is low in acidity, has a high sugar content and is yellow to orange in colour. As it does not contain limonin, it does not develop the bitter taste characteristic of other Navel varieties. Fine skin with glands with visible essential oils and moderate pulp adherence. A fundamental difference with the Lane Late variety is that the Powell is firmer with less re-greening in the summer,
maintaining its high quality even after reaching ripeness, meaning it may be harvested one to two months later than the Lane Late, as its texture stays very firm.
