Lane Late

(2 customer reviews)

Lane Late is one of a number of variants of Washington Navel. It has a beautiful orange skin with slight dimples and is distinguished from Navelate in being quite round in shape and with the secondary ‘navel’ orange in the base being small. The eating quality is excellent.

Lane Late is a late season Navel orange. Growers choose Lane Late for its late-hanging properties on the tree.

    I have just enjoyed a sweet, juicy Lane Late orange from Sainsbury’s for my breakfast. Truly delicious!

      Excellent. Lane Late is a lovely variety, especially in February from Spain.

    Late Lane is a very very nice Orange and keeps for ages in the fridge. Bought mine from ASDA many many weeks ago. I will be looking out for them again in the future for sure.

    • Nick Ball

      Lane Late is a great variety, and it is remarkable how long they last in the fridge: a good protective skin! Soon the variety will be finished from Spain, to be replaced by ultra late varieties of navels which are equally tasty.
