What are the differences between Navel and Valencia Oranges?
Valencia oranges are usually ready and ripe in the summer. The valencia orange is often considered a juicing orange. It is more difficult to peel, but it is packed with sweet orange goodness that is ready to be squeezed into fresh delicious juice. One other great thing about the valencia oranges is you can leave the fruit on the tree and they will stay good, for practically the whole year.
The navel orange looks like it has a belly button when you separate it from the stem, hence its name. It has a thicker peel, which makes it easier to peel and eat fresh. These oranges are ripe and ready in the winter (so it’s probably what you’re finding at the store right now – don’t worry, you can juice these too)

This orange berry smoothie is such a delicious and refreshing way to start the day, or add a boost to your afternoon.
