Navel Orange Tree Seeds
These seeds are ready to be planted, and are great for both indoor and outdoor trees. If you are planting them outside, they require lots of sunlight and shouldn't be growing anywhere that get less than 55 degrees F or lower.
Orange trees, along with all citrus trees, are extremely easy to grow, are medium-speed growing trees, and hardly require any attention! Just water every couple of days in full sunlight, and watch it grow!
According to a 1917 study by Dorsett, Shamel and Popenoe of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a single mutation in in a Selecta orange tree planted on the grounds of a monastery near Bahia in Brazil probably yielded the navel orange between 1810 and 1820. However, a researcher at the University of California, Riverside, suggests that the parent variety was more likely the Portuguese navel (Umbigo) orange, described by Risso and Poiteau (1818–22). The mutation caused the orange to develop a second orange at the base of the original fruit, opposite the stem, as a conjoined twin in a set of smaller segments embedded within the peel of the larger orange.
