Mandarin Imperial

The Imperial Mandarin is a popular citrus variety that originates in Australia. A large evergreen shrub to small tree that produces fragrant creamy-white flowers followed by medium-sized orange fruit with a fine, smooth, glossy golden-orange skin that tends to look “puffy”. It has a very sweet, orange coloured flesh with several seeds. Since the skin is easy to peel and the flesh is delightfully juicy and strong-scented it’s a favourite with children. They are the first mandarins to be picked each season and are perfect eaten on their own, as a healthy snack, for lunchboxes, or in desserts.
