The mandarin orange is the fruit from the tree of the same name, which belongs to the Rutaceae family, with similar characteristics to a regular orange tree, although smaller and more delicate. This family has more than 1,600 species. The Citrus genus to which this fruit belongs, is the most important of the family and it has 20 species with edible fruits, rich in vitamin C, flavonoids and essential oils.

These fruits are quite unusual, as their pulp is made by many sacks filled with juice.

The mandarin orange is considered to be the closest fruit to oranges. Its small size, more aromatic taste and easiness to peel make it a very appreciated fruit.
