Lane Late

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.
