Description: Feast your eyes on the Washington Navel Orange. This is an authentically west coast orange, thanks to its avid success in the hot dry summers and mild wet winters of our beloved california climate. The tree gets its name from its initial point of entry into the country at the USDA headquarters in the capitol. Legend traces the origin of this fruit to a missionary courtyard in Bahia, Brazil.
This orange is remarkably sweet and seedless. We like dicing it into 8ths, which are ideal sized one-biters. You may even be inclined to share when your fruit is subdivided. Slice long thin rounds to decorate your breakfast plate or cut wedges for cocktail garnish. A particular favorite is a shooter with mezcal. One besito of mezcal, a pinch of worm salt and a quarter of an orange makes for a memorable weekend jaunt. Salud!
