Organic Mandarin

Mandarini Biologici

Clementine

hybrid between mandarin and orange. The Clementine has two aspects that allow us to distinguish it from the mandarin: the seedless pulp and the spherical shape. It peels easily with the fingers, like the mandarin, but the taste is similar to the orange, with less acid. The harvest period runs from November to January.

Beneficial Properties

The beneficial properties are many, thanks to the presence of polyphenols, which give the oil that slightly bitter aftertaste and avoid the formation of free radicals.
