I find this a difficult question as I like both.
Oranges are "safer" in that they are mostly always sweet and nice.
Mandarins are much easier to eat, however they are not always nice.

I far prefer the seedless variety of mandarin and would eat more mandarins than oranges when they are in season, however this is possibly because they are so much easier to eat and I eat them at night while watching TV.

So dont have a definite answer for this question!

It's a tupperware orange peeler and it really works. My mother was expert at peeling an orange with no mess so I had to uphold the family honour. The "other" end is perfect for applying a thin line of wax to eyebrows.

Maybe a mandarin.
Not as much work..or messy...or as big :)
I prefer mandarins. I think they taste nicer and don't have the large pips like oranges. They are also much easier to peel.
I much prefer mandarins, as they are small and so easy to eat, especially if you are on the go. Something that's so important if you are a busy person. You can usually get lovely sweet ones if you go to the markets, and at a sweet price ! The ones at the shops are a bit hit and miss.
I like both for taste, but would probably choose a mandy just for the convenience.
It depends on my mood. I like both

Finy has said what I feel on this. I would consider Mandarines one of my favourite fruit. But if I had a good orange and a good mandarine prepped ready to eat - I would have trouble choosing. Possibly would choose a mandarine as their season is shorter.
Sometimes we get a variety of Mandarine that is full of seeds. My husband and I compete to see who has the most seeds. 39 one day! I would have preferred to eat an orange.
Wowie! What a haul. Hardly any room for the flesh. Heehee.

are you in Australia? i always buy seedless mandarins and this year there were two varieties and only one with seeds. so much nicer!
by Finy
Yes I am in Qld Finy. This year I haven't had a problem, so will keep a lookout for seedless. Thanks for the tip.

Oranges. Never been a fan of the taste of mandarins. I may have mentioned that my mother used to set tinned mandarins in jelly. OMG how I hated, loathed and despised it. Anyway, with my trusty tupperware orange peeler I can be into an orange as quick as peeling a mandarin . . .with no mess. Brilliant tool and I use the flat end for waxing my eyebrows. LOL
by Rice
what?? waxing your eyebrows?? LOL i find oranges make a mess even when they are peeled as they are big and you have to bite each segment in half!

I prefer a navel orange to a mandarin but I do like a nice mandarin too. The thought of a navel orange, freshly plucked from a well watered tree makes my mouth water.
what is the difference a naval orange to the other sort? i cannot tell the difference.
by Finy
Navel oranges don't have seeds and aren't quite as juicy as the ones with seeds. The varieties with seeds are better for juicing but the ones without seeds like navel oranges and valencias are easier to peel and eat.
Tricky question...I do love sweet, juicy, and seedless mandarins. Those would be my preference.
by Vee
I agree with the majority, mandarins are easier to eat, peel and carry for lunches. But if they are pipless, how do they grow more? Oranges are good for making fresh juice at home, delicious!
Oh yes! There is something soooo wonderful about fresh orange juice. mmmm.
by Rice
You know I like the flavour of both but oranges come just in front. Love the naval orange and mostly because I hate having to dispose of seeds.
shelley - you used to be on here years ago, didnt you? and then you had problems with site?

I saw Joppa oranges in the fruit shop the other day. Haven't seen them for donkeys' years. My daughter looked at me and said, "Never heard of them."
by Rice
Mandarins,& then naval oranges, but I haven't bought oranges since I used to buy by them in the orange net bags, many years ago. I don't think they're really fresh, buying them that way, as they're kept in cold storage for to long. Now I'll only buy 1 for a recipe. Perhaps all fruit is kept in cold storage for weeks or months on end!
by Miro
Mandarines. They're easier to peel and I like the taste better.
Mandarins. Largely because they are just so much more convenient. And they are nice and easy for the kids to eat as well.
I like them both the same way but they have to be tart.
