Australian Mandarins are available from April to October
Mandarins are at their best eaten fresh. They also lend themselves to many dishes such as fruit and savoury salads, cakes, desserts, cocktails and meat dishes.

When selecting mandarins choose those that have a rich, glossy skin with a fine texture. Avoid any fruits that have obvious soft spots. A puffy appearance and feel is normal due to the nature of the easy-to-peel skin.
Storage and handling
Mandarins will keep best at 7-10°C and 90-98% relative humidity. That means the best place to store them at home is either at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
Mandarins are an excellent source of vitamin C and a useful source of fibre.
