If you like your Oranges sweet and juicy then Valencia is the variety for you. Originally bred in southern California, it was named after Valencia in Spain, which is renowned for growing sweet Oranges. It’s a thin skinned orange and is perfect for juicing. The peak harvest season for Valencias is late winter and early spring. However, a fantastic benefit of Valencias is that the fruit can be left on the tree for up to 6 months. This increases the sweetness and allows you to harvest home grown Oranges well into summer.
