The most popular type of orange consumed by consumers is the navel orange. They can be identified by the fruit's tiny navel-shaped hole at the top. These oranges are the ideal snacking orange to eat out of hand because they are sweet and seedless.


Tangerines are little oranges with vivid colours. They are easier to peel and eat out of hand than other oranges since their peels are a little bit looser.

Although most tangerines have seeds, it's possible to acquire seedless variants as well.


Given that clementines are among the smaller varieties of oranges, they make a delicious snack, especially for kids. They feature a tight, thin, and easily peeled spherical skin that is nearly entirely seedless.
