Description

The "Washington Navel" cultivar of Sweet Orange (Citrus x sinensis) stands out as the most celebrated variety, having its roots in Brazil. Renowned for producing naturally seedless fruits, it offers a burst of sweet and juicy flavour, making it a top pick for citrus aficionados. These oranges also have the unique quality of staying fresh and firm on the tree for an extended period.

Gardeners can enjoy the adaptability of the "Washington Navel", suitable for both pots and direct in-ground planting. When establishing in sandy terrains, enriching the soil with a quality conditioner will provide an ideal foundation. Full sun exposure, paired with consistent watering from Kambarang to Djeran (spring to autumn), ensures a thriving tree. To encourage robust growth and an abundance of fruit, apply a citrus-focused fertiliser during Djilba (late winter to spring).
