navel oranges are pretty user-friendly

Far and away, Mandarin oranges. But you’ll have to go to China to get the real thing, most particularly Western China in the Yunnan and Sichuan provinces. They are the best tasting, most easily peeled oranges in the world!

Yes mandarins are the best! You can get big ones too over here… in Asia…

I grow Satsumas in my yard and they are awesome. They are even better to juice.

Clementines!

I know that tangerines are too tiny for your parameters, but Honey Tangerines are some of the best citrus fruit I’ve eaten! They’re juicy and a little sweet and better than any other oranges I’ve tried from the food store. Of course if you can, order Red Navel oranges during the winter directly from Florida…they’re the best if you want huge, ripe oranges.

I’ve ordered from this place before and the oranges were ridiculously good:

I agree with kay. When I was a kid, I worked here packing citurs for gifts, and we got to eat all we wanted. The Honeybell Tangelos were the best! The season for them is over now tho, so I don’t think you will be able to find them. At least not from that area of Florida.
