The Orogrande mandarin is very similar to the Clemenules variety, although it is harvested is earlier: some three weeks before the Clemenules mandarin.

A classic on your table.
At the height of the clementine mandarin season comes the queen of clementines, the Hernandina, a delicious variety with very juicy pulp whose only drawback is its short availability, as it disappears in barely one month. Live in the moment!
The Ortanique is a variety from the group of hybrid mandarins and oranges (a hybrid of a mandarin and a sweet orange). It’s known for being a big, rounded fruit. Its intense orange colour and very attractive skin is stuck fast to the pulp, which makes it more difficult to peel. It has a melting pulp with a high content of juice and no seeds.
It is harvested between the end of January and the beginning of February, and the mandarins can stay on the tree for a long period of time (approximately until May). A mandarin full of flavour.

The Navelina is a big, rounded and slightly oval Navel-type orange. It has an intense orange skin and a small navel. It is seedless with a fleshy pulp, and it contains a large amount of juice. It’s the most keenly anticipated orange, as it marks the beginning of a new season. Its harvesting starts in October and continues up to the end of January. It’s considered to be an eating orange, although it can also be used as a juice orange. A sweet seasonal appetizer.
The Navel orange, whose name derives from its ‘navel’, is not only very sweet and juicy, but also seedless: just peel and eat. Navel oranges are great for breakfast, as an afternoon snack or dessert, in marmalade, as an excellent accompaniment to fruit salads, or simply in the form of juice. Perhaps, this is why they are the most popular and versatile variety of oranges. The ‘best-seller’ of oranges.
These are very juicy and sweet eating oranges with the right degree of acidity. They have plenty of juice, a very thin skin and no seeds or limonin. It’s one of the best-quality varieties. In addition, its skin tends to have a smoother texture than the other Navel oranges and its navel is smaller and less pronounced. It’s one of the latest varieties, so it can stay on the tree in perfect condition for a long time. As a result, we can enjoy them from January to May. This is the perfect eating orange, and it’s delicious as a juice orange. One orange for everything and for everyone.
Excellent for fresh consumption, it’s obtained with the different varieties of oranges from the Navel group. It can be harvested from April and coincides with the last phases of the Lane Late variety. Owing to the lack of limonin, its orange juice doesn’t take on a bitter flavour that other varieties of the same group have. The Navel evolution.
