Empress mandarins are large, sweet and juicy with a moderate amount of seeds and a low acidity. The glossy, deep orange skin easily peels away to reveal eight to ten large sections. They are the perfect mandarins for people who are fond of oranges since their flavour is similar to a ripe orange. Empress mandarins are delicious when eaten alone, on top of a salad or cooked into a favourite recipe.
Choose Empress Mandarins with tight, glossy skin that is free from bruises and soft patches. Fruit that feels heavier than the size would indicate will be juicier and sweeter than light-feeling fruit. Store Empress Mandarins in the crisper section of the fridge for up to seven days.
