Chislett Summer Navel

Chislett Summer Navel on tree with blossom

The Chislett Summer Navel is a genuine late hanging navel having excellent eating quality, firm strong rind and negligible granulation. (Granulation trials of late navels undertaken at Waikerie showed November granulation at 0.4% for Chislett compared with 3.1% for Rohde and 6.4% for Lane Late.

Other outstanding characteristics are:

  • High vigour giving higher yields at an early tree age and better cropping recovery after late harvest and less alternate bearing.
  • Smooth skin texture.
  • Cropping inside the tree reducing rind blemish.
  • Low incidence of albedo breakdown. Susceptibility approximately 50% of Lane Late.
