Navel Oranges are a seedless orange variety with an easy to peel skin and a flesh bursting with citrus flavor. Biting in to a navel orange is like a staycation for your mouth.
This is the first time we will be offering citrus; we've spent years trying to find a family farm that we trust for quality and flavor while having direct access to the farm. FINALLY we've got it and it's only available one time a year.
This family-owned citrus farm is located in the heart of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The Becnel family has farmed in this region for decades and Farmer Thomas is the 6th generation. Once known for having ideal growing conditions for citrus, many farms have been closing due to the climate changing. This family farm is one of the last of a Louisiana citrus legacy.
Our operations manager helped sell this citrus to some of the top restaurants in New Orleans like Herbsaint and Dante's Kitchen when he lived down South and was blown away with the flavor and passion Farmer Thomas has for citrus growing. We're very honored and excited to bring New Yorkers citrus that's harvested by Farmer Thomas for pure flavor perfection. Because it is so rare to find citrus in New York straight from the farm, we suggest you stock up.
