The Fukumoto orange tree has a fascinating history. Experts believe that the tree was a naturally occurring mutation of a Washington navel tree that was found in the 1960s in a garden in Kokawa-Cho, which is located in the Wakayama Prefecture in Japan. The owner of the garden was a man named S. Fukumoto, and that’s how this unique navel orange tree got its name.
