Binomial Name：Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck.
Chinese Name：甜橙 | 臍橙
Other Names：Navel Oranges
Product Description：Navel oranges are not native to Taiwan. As early as 1820, the sweet oranges in the orchard of a Brazilian monastery had bud mutations, and navel oranges were born in the world. It is characterized by an undeveloped by-fruit at the top of the fruit's peel, resulting in a distinctive scar that resembles a human navel, hence the name navel orange. The whole fruit has no seeds, and its appearance is slightly larger than ordinary oranges. The average weight of each orange is about 300-350 grams, which is quite suitable for consumption.
Variety：Sweet orange is also classified as citrus, accounting for about 58.3% of the world's citrus production. It is the main cultivated species in Europe, America and Brazil. Except for some fresh food, most of them are mainly processed as juice. Sweet orange is divided into [sweet orange] (common orange) oranges), [navel oranges], [blood oranges], [sugar oranges], etc.
Oranges are native to Xinhui County, Guangdong Province, and have a history of more than 250 years. Oranges are a general name, and they contain many strains. It was only cultivated in large quantities in the Jianan area. The Taiwan orange strain was originally recorded as "Xinhui Orange" by Professor Yuichiro Tanaka in Japan, and Professor Zhang Wencai of Huazhong Agricultural University in mainland China came to Taiwan for field observation and thought it might be "Xinhui Orange". The result of the comparison shows that the DNA types of the willow oranges in Taiwan are different from the Xinhui oranges and Mingliu oranges in the mainland, so it is impossible to determine whether they are Xinhui oranges or Mingliu oranges, and the appearance is not half-willow or small-leaved willow, whether it is dark willow Orange, still needs to be further explored.
Fruit shape: Navel orange is an early-maturing sweet orange species, weighing 200-250 grams more than ordinary oranges, and because it has multiple fruits, a small fruit is born inside the top of the fruit, which often cracks and is navel-shaped, so it is called navel orange. The fruit color is orange-yellow to orange, the peel is thinner at the top of the fruit than the stem, the flesh is orange-yellow, soft and juicy, with a light aroma, sugar content 12~13Brix, acidity 0.5-0.8%, very good flavor, it is among fresh sweet oranges The best quality. Because the pollen of navel orange is not fermented and the ovules are not fermented, the common squeezed oranges are seedless. If other citrus varieties with pollen are planted in the garden, they can produce a few seeds and increase the fruiting rate.
