Open season for California’s organic navel oranges 

Tue 12/11/2019 by Richard WIlkinson

California’s organic navel campaign is starting earlier each year, with the new season having got underway at the start of November. Producers are predicting a good campaign, with sales set to peak around Thanksgiving and Christmas. Reports suggest the crop is 15% less than average, but sizes are significantly larger and should peak at 72 to 88 size. While, there was a time when no fruits would be available before Christmas, new treatment protocols allow for ripe and well-coloured organic oranges to be ready for Thanksgiving.
