Orange tree with fruit that has yellow skin and orange fruit

I bought what I thought was a Washington navel orenge and it has late fruit that has a yellow skin and a pale orenge fruit. It also has seeds and I thought that the Washington navel orenge was seedless.

I almost think it is a grapefruit but the flesh is sweet and pale orenge. I have trained it on a frame and it has a lot of fruit that is large and almost grapefruit shaped.

I hope someone can help me determine if it is indeed a grapefruit. I know that there shouldn't be a mystery but it is just not quite a grapefruit.

Maybe its some kind of hybrid? Here's a hybrid grapefruit that looks like it might fit your description:


Does your fruit taste like a grapefruit or like an orange?
