When I was in my local organic market the other day, a handful of unconventionally-looking oranges were sitting in a back shelf.
I had never seen anything that look like these and then asked the guy working there a question.
“Do you these come like this?”
“Yes,” he said.
As it turns out, these are organic gold nugget mandarins (or tangerines).
The few key attributes of the organic gold nugget mandarin are:
– It has a rich, sweet taste.
– It is seedless.
– It is very easy to peel.
– It is bigger in size than a traditional tangerine.
Many people on the West Coast are probably very familiar with the gold nugget mandarin but this was something new to me. If you see it your local market, give it a try and let me know what you think.
