Mandarin oranges (Citrus reticulata) are small sweet oranges that are usually sold in bags in the supermarket. They are also known as the mandarin or mandarine. They grow on a small citrus tree with fruit resembling other oranges. According to an article we saw on Wikipedia: molecular studies have shown that the mandarin, the citron, the pomelo, and the papeda were the ancestors of all other citrus species and their varieties, through breeding or natural hybridization; mandarins are therefore all the more important as the only sweet fruit among the parental species. Mandarin oranges are thought to have evolved in Vietnam, southern China, and Japan. See the nutritional chart below.
