I usually eat a mandarin every day when they are in season.
This year my fruit and veg shop where I go (a 20 minute drive from home!) had mandarins virtually all year round from Egypt - they were not anywhere near as nice as ours though.
So, yes, i like mandarins and I also love oranges but find mandarins so much easier to eat while I watch TV.
Our 7 & 3/4 year old granddaughter has been learning Mandarin since kinda -garden. She's now in year 3, & of cause is still learning it. I guess she also eats them, when her mother buys them at the market.
I have always loved mandarins, and can recall having them when a very little girl. They are so fragrant as well as delicious and now I see there are varieties with far less seeds in them than they always used to have!! I only have eaten Australian mandarins.My friend here in Townsville has an amazing tree which always produces the sweetest and juiciest fruit which she has often shared with me. The real bonus to mandarins now that I am crippled up with arthritis, is that they are very easy to peel and to break apart for ease of eating!! The very reason they are popular for children too!! Ha ha ha ha!!!!
For years and years I hated them, even the smell would make me feel sick, then I was given an organic one and it was so sweet and juicy I just loved it. Now they are a regular feature on my shopping list!
