Navel
Navel are seedless oranges that take their names from the navel protuberance at the end, which contains a tiny embryonic fruit. They have thick, pebbly skins and very sweet juicy flesh. The skin is particularly good for making preserves or as candied peel. The navel oranges thrive in such subtropical climates as the Mediterranean, and grown extensively in Spain, Morocco, Turkey, South Africa, Australia, California, Florida, Uruguay, Brazil, and Argentina. It was certainly the Brazilian navel orange called Bahia that was introduced to the US in 1870 to fill the need for a good early variety. Navels are seedless and propoagate by cuttings and were imported by the USDA in Washington, who distributed them to growers in Florida and California, and thus acquiring the name of Washington Navel.

Valencia
Valencia is the most important commercial variety in the world, living up to its nickname of the "King of Juice Oranges". Valencia accounts for 50% of the total Florida fruit crop and the principal variety used for processing into juice. The Valencia originated in China and taken to Europe by Portuguese or Spanish voyagers. The Englishman, Thomas Rivers, brought plants from the Azores to Florida in 1870, where it was first cultivated as the Brown "orange", but later renamed Hart's Tardiff, Hart, and Hart Late, and rapidly became Florida's premier sweet orange cultivar. The Valencia is perfect for the tropics, even though colour development may vary when the weather is hot. It has a thin and slightly pebbly rind. The flesh is bright orange and extremely juicy and nearly seedless. Valencia is a late orange, which has a smooth, thin skin, and contains few if any seeds, pale flesh, a sharp flavour, and is very juicy.

Blood (Maltese)
A small fruit and are the best oranges to use for sorbets and dessert where colour is important. They are the essential ingredient of the Maltaise sauce, an orange-flavoured mayonnaise, which takes its name from the sour, but juicy, Maltese blood orange. Their flavour has an interesting mix of oranges, raspberries, and concord grapes. Its pulp ranges from red to reddish purple, and its rind from an orange to an orange deeply suffused with red. The branches of the tree are covered with thorns, which could also have contributed to the name and not just the colour of the fruit. It is generally thought to have originated in Italy as a mutation, and has been cultivated there for centuries. It is also extensively grown in southern Spain and Malta, although the Maltese claim origin. Blood oranges are also raised on a small scale in California which is raising more awareness of its existence in North America.

Dream Navel
Known for its easy peeling and separation; but it is also a sweet, juicy, less acidic orange than most other navels. It is a round shape, with nine to twelve segments, and is often seedless. The Dream is small to medium-sized with a pale orange rind, light orange pulp, and a pleasant ripe-mango aroma. The Dream Navel, a name patented in 1944, was discovered in Orlando, Florida, which gave rise to such other dream makers as Walt Disney.

Sanguinelli
Cultivated in Sicily and is actually a mutant of the Doble Fina. It was discovered in 1929 at Almenara, in the Castellón province of Spain. It has a well-balanced flavour, with a hint of plums. Its oblong shape, golden yellow rind, and succulent red blush pulp make it an interesting looking fruit, as well as a delicious one. The Sanguinelli is common in the Mediterranean, where it is commonly called a blood orange. The complex burgundy red colour of the pulp needs cool to cold weather to develop. It makes an excellent juice.

Shamouti, Jaffa
A mutation of an earlier and inferior Palestinian variety, dating from around 1850. The tree is beautiful, however, with its dense foliage, large leaves, and no thorns. The fruit rivals a fine perfume, and its brilliant orange flesh is absent of seeds. The thick rind is somewhat dimpled and easily peeled. The Shamouti is harvested in Israel from December through May.

Washington Navel
Originally a mutant from Bahia, Brazil, arriving in North America via a missionary who was so impressed with the rich flavour and its seedlessness, that she sent twelve nursery-sized trees to the USDA, who propagated them and offered them to anyone who cared to give the species a try. In 1873, Eliza Tibbets of Riverside, California, asked for a few and soon launched the industry in the Western US. The fruit is large and the rind easily removed. It is not very juicy, but the flavour is excellent. Today, the fruit is commercially grown, not only in Brazil and California, but also in Paraguay, Spain, South Africa, Australia, and Japan.

Bergamot
Oranges (Citrus bergamia) are from a rare variety of bitter orange grown in Calabria and Sicily for making fragrant oil used mainly in perfumery, but also used for its distinctive flavour in Earl Grey Tea. These are inedible, but the peel can be candied or made into unusual marmalade. The flavour of the peel defies description, and is so highly-scented that only minute amounts are needed to flavour puddings and confections. Needless to say, it is so rare and expensive that few have the opportunity to sample its taste. It is all but unknown in North America, and should not be confused with the "false bergamot", which is only vaguely reminiscent of the true flavour. The false bergamot, also known as Oswego-tea, fragrant balm, and bee balm, is derived from the plant Monarda didyma (Family Labiatae), a type of mint indigenous to the New World, and also used to flavour certain types of tea.

Bigaradier Apepu
Originally carried to France by the Crusaders; and, by 1322, Nice had begun cultivating and trading them. They were also the fruit planted in the orangeries of Versailles and Paris, making them a member of the citrus nobility. This large globose fruit has a medium-thick orange rind, twelve segments, and many seeds, with a flavour tasting like a combination of orange and lime.

Bittersweet, Daidai (Japanese)
The Spanish principal variety of sour orange. It has clusters of fruit with very seedy endocarp (pulp) enclosed in a thick orange rind. The segment walls of this oblong fruit are tough, with an open center. The fruit is much too bitter and acidic to be eaten fresh, but is used in marmalades, juice, and for its essential oil. When the leaves are crushed, they have a pleasant and distinctive aroma. This variety is grown in Japan and in Florida's Indian River area. The pectin and acid levels of the Bittersweet variety are ideal for preserving.

Seville
Seville is the tree that travelled to Spain with the Moors. Commercial groves exist now in most areas of the Mediterranean, with the major industry around Seville, Spain. It is an attractive orange, with a radiant golden colour in both its rind and flesh. It is of medium size, with ten large segments and many seeds. The pulp is tender but highly acidic. The Seville's sour flavour has a distinctive bitterness, making it superior for marmalade. The juice of the sour orange is often used as a marinade in Latin American countries, where the trees are common. A classic Cuban mojo or marinade is made with equal parts of sour orange and olive oil, along with garlic and onions.
