Mandarins are small in size. The mandarin’s peel is smooth, glossy, thin, and bright yellow-orange, covered in sunken oil glands creating a textured, pebbled surface. The peel is easy to remove, revealing orange flesh, divided into 10 to 11 segments by thin white membranes. The flesh is tender, pulpy, and seedless with a soft, chewy consistency. The fruits will also emit a bright, pleasant, and fresh aroma when rubbed, scratched, or peeled. Mandarins contain low acidity and high sugar, creating a sweet, subtly tart, and tangy flavor.
