Cambria

Cambria is a very late-season, high quality Navel orange. It is seedless and is a great looking fruit with smooth, well coloured skin and a closed navel-end.  The skin is fairly thin and adheres quite tightly to the segments which are firm and full of sweetness and flavour.

Cambria is popular with growers, not only as a chance to extend the Navel season, but because it has almost no creasing, has high yields and high export pack-out for a Navel orange.
