About Mandarin Oranges

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.

Some background information:

Over the years, people have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product as the main meal, and then think about everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
