What will you do with your oranges?
Availability and limits may vary by region, so you can contact your store for details. While supplies last. Most of our stores do not provide rain checks for sales like this. *Due to supply issues, Arizona stores will have organic Valencia oranges for the same price, 79 cents per pound, so you won't miss out on this organic citrus deal!
Navel oranges are chock full of vitamin C, plenty of juicy flavor, and they’re a refreshing addition to most anything, from breakfast to snacks and salads, main dishes and desserts. You can use the juice, the rind, and the inside sections. They’re perfect in a pinch, they’re seedless and they section easily so they’re ideal for plenty of recipes and now’s the time to get ‘em fresh!
Navel oranges are quite unique; once peeled or cut open, you’ll find a little tiny twin attached to the main flesh tucked away at the bottom (or blossom) end. From the outside it looks like a navel (aka belly button).
That’s why as children growing up in California, we called them belly button oranges. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to liven up recipes just by adding sections of navel oranges.
Of course, you can always enjoy them straight out of hand, or tempt yourself with some of our fresh ideas:
- Add to a leafy green salad. Here are some refreshing salad ideas: Orange and Fennel Salad, Sweet Onion Salad with Orange Vinaigrette and Orange and Avocado Salad. Try this recipe for Mixed Greens with Oranges and Pecorino using navel oranges.
