“Skaggs” Bonanza Navel Oranges

In the Early 1980’s, John Walker found a “limb sport” in a Navel citrus tree in a grove in Lindsay California. This branch of a Bonanza Navel was growing oranges with extremely smooth-skin and very sweet fruit that was maturing particularly early in the season. Through the courtesy of the grove owner, Mr. Skaggs, a cutting or “cultivar” was placed into the Citrus Clonal program.

Many of the specialty strains of the varieties of citrus have been discovered in this method. Citrus can produce a slightly different branch of fruit, on the same tree, and then propagate that new fruit, thus creating the variations.

Depending on the conditions Mother Nature gives us each year determines the size and number of oranges in each box. Regardless of her decisions, the medium box will hold 15 to 18 beautiful oranges.  $ 22.50
