Citrus - Mandarins and Tangerines


W-64-Fortune-Tangerine.jpg

Variety: Fortune


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Fortune mandarins tend to be squat and wide like thick saucers, and have a unique dark orange color. They do tend to be seeded, but the tradeoff is a hearty fruit that won't dry out!


W-67-Page-Mandarin.jpg

Variety: Page


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

The page mandarin has an amazing scent that goes along with its zest, contributable to it's 1/4th grapefruit heritage. It's also a seedless variety, making these excellent lunch-box oranges due to their small size and sweet kick.


Variety: Satsuma


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Satsuma Oranges are amazingly easy to peel, with the rind of the fruit often times lifting away from the flesh inside. These are a mind-bogglingly amazing piece of citrus with tons of juice and sweetness, however due to the very easy to peel skin the flesh can dry out quickly, making their peak season short. If you see a Satsuma, grab it before it's gone!

  • Super Easy Peel!

W-63-Tangor-Temple-Orange.jpg

Variety: Tango


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Also known as a Cutie Mandarin or a Delight Mandarin, this mandarin is a perfect tango of sweet and tart that makes it the ideal orange to pair with. Try blending its juice into chocolate or avocado to get the full experience!


W-68-Dancy-Mandarin.jpg

Variety: Dancy


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

The Dancy, otherwise known as Daisy LS, similar to Daisy Mandarins but these guys are nearly seedless. Out of a selection of 50 different whole mandarins, there's an average of 11 seeds in the entire bunch!
 

  • Easy Peel!

Variety: Minneola Tangelo


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Minneola Tangelos are often called "Honeybells" due to their shape that gives them a look of a droplet of honey, and the flavor doesn't dissapoint! When picking a good one, judge them by weight. Lighter Minneola can be prone to drying due to their porous skin that will absorb the juice making them smell amazing and tricking the average produce sniffer!


Variety: Clementine


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Clementines keep a small degree of separation between their flesh and rind that make them very easy to peel. The Clementine can carry quite a kick, offset by good sweetness make these taste like tart candy. 

  • Super Easy Peel!

W-60-Gold-Nugget-Mandarin.jpg

Variety: Gold Nugget


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

Gold Nuggets have a name that fits the bill. A rocky looking rind with a light gold tint, this close relative of the pixie is a dependable choice for those looking to stock up on citrus right before the season ends. Not only does it come in late, but it lasts a long while due to its hearty exterior.


Variety: Kishu


Season: Nov-Apr

 

Description:

The Kishu has a high natural sugar content, with an easy to peel skin. They're USUALLY about the size of a walnut, but at Murray's, we grow em up big!

W-59-Kishu-Mandarin-Orange.jpg
Adorable and irresistible, the Seedless Kishu is one of the most delicious of mandarins, smaller than a golf ball but easy to peel, tender, juicy, fragrant and sweet. Until recently it was very difficult to find, even at farmers markets.

W-61-Pixie-Mandarin.jpg

Variety: Pixie


Season: Nov-Apr


Description: 

It just isn't fair for other Citrus, considering how good Pixies are! They're small, easy to peel, delicious, just, amazing!

Unsurprisingly, they’re popular with kids. Growing up on the farm, Thacher and her brother George definitely had their fill. Thacher recalls (or seems to recall), “We literally would eat all of them and nobody ever got any—because they’re so good!”
— Blue Apron on Page Mandarins

Variety: Shasta Gold


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

These little beauties are a delight to have around. Easy to peel and relatively seedless. They have a sweet aftertaste and a strong initial kick making them excellent candidates to be segmented and tossed in salads. You can also add juice from any of the Gold Three to orange juice to double its flavor!


W-62-Tahoe-VGold-Mandrin.jpg

Variety: Tahoe Gold


Season: Nov-Apr


Description

Tahoe gold mandarins are the earliest of the Gold Three, known for their unique citrus flavor. For those that just can't wait, the Tahoe is the first to carry the flag. 


W-65-Yosemite-Tangerine.jpg

Variety: Yosemite Gold 


Season: Nov-Apr


Description:

While early season Yosemite can have tightly affixed skin, the rind will become easier and easier to peel as the season moves forward and protection from the elements becomes less important to budding Citrus babies! These bad boys are pretty darn juicy, with nearly half their overall mass being just juice!
