 Navel Orange
In the juicy world of oranges there are two reigning cultivars, the Navel Orange and the Valencia Orange.Some orange varieties are sweeter while some are more tart. Some oranges are small and some are big, while some are seedless and others not. Also, some oranges some peal easily.

Here is the different between this two orange

Valencia Orange 

  • Valencia Orange contain a few seeds, they are the perfect juicing orange because they are juicier than other oranges. Furthermore, the juice is invigorating, brightly colored, has a well-balanced sweet-tart flavor that will help you beat the heat of summer.
  • Valencias Limonin, which is a natural compound and known anti-oxidant that when exposed to air converts enzymes and becomes bitter, is found in the seeds so you can juice the fruit, store it in the fridge and enjoy it for a few days, even weeks.

Navel Orange

  • They taste sweeter than Valencias and are great to munch on fresh out of hand or tossed in a salad.
  • Unlike Valencia oranges, Navels are better eaten fresh rather than juiced because the Limonin is found in the flesh of Navels so the juice turns bitter within 30 minutes.
