Navel oranges sweeter this year New year promises to be sweet for orange lovers

This season in particular, California navel oranges will be tastier than ever, as a beneficial delay in the Central Valley harvest has boosted the fruit’s sweetness. “The oranges were slower to acquire the rich color associated with our fruits this year, so we picked them a few weeks later than normal,” noted grower and CEO of the California Citrus Growers Association, Mike George. “By allowing the oranges extra time to mature on the trees, the fruit took on a sweeter taste that families are already enjoying.”
