mantariniMandarins

The Mandarin orange, also known as the mandarin or mandarine (both lower-case), is a small citrus tree (Citrus reticulata) with fruit resembling other oranges. The mandarin is easily peeled with the fingers, starting at the thick rind covering the depression at the top of the fruit, and can be easily split into even segments without squirting juice. This makes it convenient to eat, as utensils are not required to peel or cut the fruit.

Organic Nova
The cultivation of organic Nova oranges increase year by year in Epirus. Nova is a medium sized fruit, often semi-circular with reddish skin that is easily peeled. The flesh is dark orange and juicy with a rich sweet flavor. Organic Nova are available from January to February.

Organic Clementines
A traditional tangerine variety of Epirus, located in the north west of Greece. Clementines are of medium size, can be peeled quite easily and have a rich, juicy and sweet flavor. Clementines are available from January to February.

Organic Mandora
A mandora is a cross of mandarin and orange. It is easily mistaken for a clementine, but its skin is tougher and the fruit contains seeds. The taste is more acidic than the Cclementine’s. The fruit’s appearance looks much like an orange, with a rough orange outside and a juicy, seedy inside. It is tougher to peel than a clementine. The season of the mandora is from January to April.
