Barnfield navel

Barnfield is an ultra late season navel orange.  It is a good size fruit with a deep orange peel and delicious, intense late-season flavour; sweet and satisfying.

Barnfield is usually seedless, though occasional seeds can be found.

Barnfield is one of a series of very late-season navel oranges from Australia, others being Summer Gold, Autumn Gold, Powell, Edwards, Chislett and Toomey.
