Mandarins – whole, halved and peeled segment

Mandarines are the smaller sweeter seedless cousins of the tangerine or satsuma, with an easy to peel thin skin. These grow very well on the east coast of Corsica, where 300 varieties are listed in San Giuliano’s National Citrus Biological Resource Centre; clementines are the most popular.
