Mandarins

Algerian (Ferment)

Algerian mandarinFruit Ripens: Feb-May

Description: Algerian tangerines are some of the smallest citrus fruits, measuring less than two and a half inches in diameter. Their shape varies
from oblate to oblong to pyriform; they often, but not always, have short necks. The rind is pebbled and deep orange. Combined with the Algerian tangerine’s general lack of seeds, the thin and easy to peel rind makes this fruit an ideal snack food. Inside are eight to twelve separate segments of deep orange, juicy flesh. The taste is very sweet and has been described as melting, tender, and refreshing.

Dancy

Dancy mandarinFruit Ripens: March-Apr

Description: Dancy mandarin traces its origin to a seedling tree growing in the orchard of Colonel G. L. Dancy of Orange Mills in 1867. Its parent was a mandarin tree, known as the Morganne “tangerine,” reported to have been growing in the orchard of N. H. Morganne as early as 1843. This tree is believed to have been introduced from Tangiers, Morocco by Major At-way, the previous owner of the Morganne property. Regardless of this variety’s tangled history, its reputed origin of Tangiers gave rise to the term “tangerine” which today seems to refer to any mandarin, not just Dancy.
