Description: FRUITS MANDARINES - Mandarins (Citrus reticulata) belong to the rue family (Rutaceae) and come originally from southern China. In addition to mandarins, the group of citrus fruits, which are mainly cultivated in subtropical regions, also includes lemons, grapefruits, oranges, limes and easypeelers. Easypeeler is the name given in particular to crosses between oranges and mandarins whose peel is very easy to remove. The mandarin is a yellow to dark-orange fruit, which is smaller than the orange and flattened in shape. Characteristic features are the easily removable thin peel, rich in oil cells, and the sweet, highly aromatic pulp, which usually contains a lot of seeds. Chinese mandarins are larger and contain fewer seeds than most of the Mediterranean varieties. Mandarins are divided into the conventional varieties (mandarins, satsumas, tangerines) and hybrids, which are produced by crossing mandarins, satsumas, tangerines, oranges and grapefruit. Fungicides are diphenyl, orthophenylphenol (OPP) and thiabendazole (TBZ). Diphenyl can be recognized from its naphthalene-like odor. The fungicides primarily prevent blue and green molds, but they do impair flavor and indication of their use is mandatory.
