Lack of Florida Navel Oranges Is Bemoaned

Editor, News-Register:

Why can’t we buy Florida Navel oranges in Wheeling, W.Va.?

Is it because they are to sweet and juicy? Have you ever eaten a Florida Navel orange?

I’ve checked with all the companies selling oranges in the Wheeling area. All you can get are oranges out of California, less juicy and certainly not sweet.

If you have an answer, tell me.
