DNE offers navel and cara cara oranges in 35-pound cartons stacked 70 per pallet. Specialty varieties, including tangerines, minneolas and blood oranges, come in 22-pound cartons stacked 100 per pallet.

The company also offers 3-pound bags of navels and clementines.

How much fruit will be available as the season progresses will depend on the currency exchange rates, Monaghan said.

If the rate favors Australian growers, expect to see more volume in late September and early October, he said.

Australian navels, which are shipped out of the port city of Adelaide, are grown in three regions — Riverland and Sunraysia, each of which ships about 45% of the total, and Riverina, which ships the remaining 10%.

Tangerines also are grown in all of the regions.
