Fukumoto Navel Orange
Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck
This early maturing Japanese navel orange selection reaches legal maturity three to four weeks before Washington navel and is one of the earliest to reach color-break. One of the most outstanding characteristics of this selection is the deep reddish rind color of the fruit. The fruit are harvested from mid-October to late December in California. Fukumoto trees tend to be smaller than other navel selections and appear to produce more chimeras than most navel orange selections. Imported from Japan by DR. W. P. Bitters. Chosen by him because it was the best appearing navel in the Japanese produce display.
