Frutti Battaglio - Mandarino


Origin: South Africa, Spain

Varieties: Leanri, Nadorcott, Orri, Tang Gold

The mandarin, also known as tangerine, belongs to the Rutaceae family and originally native to the far East. While similar to oranges, it is much smaller and sweeter, with a thinner soft skin that is easy to remove.

This fruit, as well as the pomelo and the bitter orange, is a unique original citrus fruit, whereas all others are natural hybrids born of spontaneous cross-breeding between different varieties.
