The Orri mandarin has earned the title of the 'Queen of mandarins' and is considered a premium fruit since its introduction to the market in 2007.
There is no single answer to what makes this variety of mandarins so special.
The taste, texture and firmness of Orri elevate it to the Olympus of citrus fruits.
It measures around 90 millimetres and is slightly flattened with an intense orange colour.
It is easy to peel and has a juicy pulp. Seeds are rarely found in its segments, which feature fine membranes that melt in the mouth.
In terms of taste, the Orri mandarin is like candy. Its high sugar levels (between 14° and 15° Brix), combined with its perfectly balanced acid content, give it a unique taste.
In addition, the Orri mandarin is a source of Vitamin C, which boosts the immune system.
It also contains fibre that helps regulate cholesterol levels and is rich in minerals that regulate blood pressure.
Orri mandarins will hit the markets in a few weeks and consumers will have the chance to enjoy its organoleptic qualities.
When you taste an Orri, words and arguments are superfluous, and there is no need to convince anyone of the benefits of consuming it.
