- Mandarin, Green
Grown and pressed in Sicily
Green mandarin is the first mandarin of the season--the fruits are picked while still green and the green imparts a delicious, mouth-watering sharp tang. This oil also has a red current note--characteristic of fresh Northern Sicilian Mandarin oil. The red current note will fade after the first few months, leaving the gorgeous mandarin as we know it.
Soft delicious citrus without acidity or bite. Mandarin is a wonderful and gentle citrus, suitable for most. Use as a tonic, or as an uplifting addition of sunshine. Mandarin is the same botanical name as Tangerine, its American cousin. They smell very similar, with mandarin being a little fuller, a little more sophisticated perhaps, and with a teeny, tiny fish note. Tangerine is a little more innocent, less complicated.
Mandarin is, above all, happy and uplifting. Children love it.
