Lane Late Navel Orange Tree (Citrus x ‘Lane Late’)

Lane Late Navel Orange Tree

The Lane Late Navel Orange Tree (Citrus x ‘Lane Late’) is a spring-summer ripening, seedless Navel Orange. It’s a Washington Navel hybrid developed in Australia with fine, rich flavor! All of these qualities make for a fantastic home-grown fruit, but a difficult one to grow commercially. Until recently it was a challenge to find – even at farmers markets – but the fruits are becoming more readily available, thanks to small groves of Citrus trees growers.

The glistening and fantastically scented blooms and a pollinator’s favorite! They’ll perfume the air indoors and out! Backed by a flush of glossy evergreen foliage that’s handsome and full year-round! The Lane Late Sweet Orange is a great choice for oranges to peel and eat or juice in the summer.

From the glossy bright green foliage that remains year-round, to the drifts of fragrant white blossoms, you’ll always have something to enjoy! However, it will turn the most heads once it’s dripping in darling bright orange orbs just begging to be devoured!

Planting and Application:

If you live in a colder climate, simply plant them in a container. Bring your tree indoors near a sunny window, and let the intoxicating citrus scent brighten your home during cold winter days. Great tropical additions when pruned formally around a sunny poolside or patio, or used in long informal hedgerows mixed with other citrus trees for privacy, shelterbelts and great property division.

Kid-friendly healthy snacks for lunchboxes or snacking, you’ll love seeing your family eat homegrown food! Small-sized and ideal for edible gardening indoors and out, these space-saving convenient trees are beautiful as they are useful landscape additions!
