Customer Tips & Reviews Orange - Washington Navel
WOLLONGONG WEST, NSW, Australia
Combined with my Tahitian Lime, Minneola Tangelo and Ruby Grapefruit, I hope to get some delicious fruit from this particular specimen in the years ahead.
MIDDLE RIDGE, QLD, Australia
This is an easy to grow fruit tree with good quality and productivity. Fruit may need thinning early on to let the vegetation grow faster and not spend its energy producing fruit of poor quality in the first few seasons.
RISDON PARK, SA, Australia
Unbelievably sweet, luscious and flavoursome fruit. Why anyone bothers to eat store bought oranges is beyond me. Flowers itself half to death each year, so I will be ruthless next year. Early heatwave and severe winds caused havoc this season, with mos...
fruits well every second year
USA, CA, Orange County
The name of this tree is Lanes Late. Sorry the title is misleading :-)10/15/12If picked early fruit is still sweet with a slight tang. Tree produces heavy for only being in the ground for a little over a year. The picture was taken not long after plan...
Very little growth but some new shoots now in spring
St Agnes, SA, AUST
fruit most of the year good for juicing in the mornings
Will update when actually starts to fruit. But healthy growth at this stage.
Waratah, NSW, Australia
Beautiful tasting fruit, also fantastic for privacy from neighbours, with beautiful smelling flowers
Not sure if this one will fruit. Its in competition with neighbour's paperbark.

Really easy to look after and produces heaps of really tasty, juicy fruit.
Glenwood, NSW, Australia
This poor tree is not happy. It's planted between a Eureka Lemon and Tahitian Lime - both of which are doing extremely well. But the Orange tree is sulking.
Rathmines, NSW, Australia
Slow growing, drops fruit regularly, fruit that is left gets scarred?? All this rain we have had has really helped this little fella. Is flowering again as well. Got two fruit in 2009/10September 2010 has put on a fair amount of growth in a year ...
South Maroota, NSW, Australia
Bought 15 years ago and only put in soil 7 years ago. Wonderful fruiting, bumper crop each year, no diseases or pests - including gall wasp - remarkable as it sits next to a lemonade lemon which gets quite badly affected. Very occassionally fed, when I...

BOLWARRA HEIGHTS, NSW, Australia
I've struggled with this but then found out the soil was holding too much water. It was dug up and the soil area raised about a foot, then pruned the tree back. Since then it's sprouted a lot of new growth, but it has set it back.
Moodlu, QLD, Australia
Navels are just the best. Seedless, juicy and tasty, as well as being disease resistant too.
