No Pollenizer For Navels





I read that the flowers of the Navel orange are entirely lacking in

pollen, or only poorly supplied. If this is true, what variety of orange

would you plant in a Navel grove - to supply pollen at the proper time?



We would not plant any other orange near the Navel for the sake of

supplying it with pollen. Pollen is only needed to make seeds, and by

the same process to make the fruit set, and Navels do not make seeds,

except rarely, nor do they seem to need pollen to make the fruit set.
