Citrus Exporter Company In Egypt | Orange Navel - Orange Valencia


What is different between Navel orange and Valencia orange?

Herein down below we will shed light on the difference between orange varieties, let`s start;

Of all the citrus fruits produced all over the world, oranges account for the majority of the fruit production and make up the highest-value crop when it comes to international trade. How could it not be? People are drawn to and just love the naturally sweet and refreshing flavors of oranges no matter what season it is.

There are many orange varieties in Egypt but there are two cultivars that top all the charts: the sweet-snacking Navel Orange and the refreshingly juicy Valencia Orange.

Sweet differences

The navel orange and Valencia orange are sweet oranges of the genus Citrus x Sinensis, which result from the citric mandarin and the tart pomelo. 75% of the genetic makeup of oranges is from Mandarin. Although both are of the same genus, there are a few notable differences between the two.

1. Outside Appearance

  • Egyptian Valencia Oranges, which were named after the city of Valencia in Spain, are medium-sized oranges with thin, bright orange, finely textured rinds that are somewhat difficult to peel.
  • Egyptian Navel Oranges are large, spherical oranges with thick, deep-orange, loose rinds that are easy to peel.

2. Taste as a citrus exporter

  • Valencia oranges are juicy and have the perfect ratio of sweet-tart flavor making them great juicing oranges. The juice is refreshing and can be stored for a long time since the natural compound Limonin, which turns the fruit bitter, is found in the seeds and not in the flesh.
  • Navels are deliciously sweet oranges with less tang than Valencia oranges. They are wonderful to snack on and tossed in a salad to give a sweet and refreshing flavor. Keep in mind that if you wish to juice Navel oranges, make sure to drink it as soon as you juice it as there is Limonin in the flesh of this fruit, and the juice quickly turns bitter.

3. Season

  • Being a winter fruit, you can import Valencia oranges from January until Late May. You can also pre-order Valencia oranges through this form and get them shipped to you straight away. Buying fruits directly from us is better than buying from brokers as we have our own farms besides gained experience helped us to improve the quality all the time since fruits are only picked when they are in their prime form (shape, ripeness).
  • Navel oranges are in season from December to the Middle of February. Because they ripen during the cold seasons, they are aptly called winter oranges.
