An early maturing variety with large juicy fruit which are easy to peel. Great fruiting variety for Melbourne. A compact, rounded tree.


Performs best in a warm full sun position and is happy in most soil types as long as it has good drainage. Oranges can be attacked by citrus scale and leaf miner, use appropriate treatment if detected. Prevent insect attack by growing in ideal conditions. Fertilise in spring and late summer with high nitrogen fertiliser.

Landscape Uses

Great for growing in containers due to its compact habit. Ideal for courtyards, patios, balconies and decks. Perfect addition to a Mediterranean style garden. Washington Navels do espalier well. Tie back lateral growth to a trellis, and prune growth coming outwards.
