Seedless mandarins are incredibly popular and easy to eat. They have bright orange, robust and easy to peel skins. The fruit is sweet and juicy and the segments separate easily. Seedless mandarins can be eaten fresh or added to any number of sweet or savoury dishes.
Seedless mandarins keep well and can be bought in large or small quantities. Always choose mandarins that are heavy for their size, which shows they are full of juice. Look for a smooth skin that is free from blemishes, soft spots or mould. Mandarins will keep well in the crisper section of the fridge for up to two weeks, or in a cool dark place for up to one week.
Did you know? Mandarins don't produce seeds until they have been pollinated (fertilised). To make seedless varieties, growers must carefully choose their locations to be certain they are far enough away from a beehive. Even so, it is hard to keep the bees away. Some farmers need to put nets over their trees to keep the pesky pollen out.
