It’s impossible to imagine the New Year without mandarin taste & flavour. Its taste is known to everybody since childhood. Mandarin is actually the most popular fruit on the Russian market. In 2013 its share in total Russian citrus supplies increased 40% according to Federal Customs Service.
China is the birthplace of mandarin, but usually it is imported in Russia from Marocco, Turkey, Pakistan, China & Spain. The total share of these countries increased 75% by the results of 2013. In USSR times this fruit was actively grown in Georgia & Abkhasia. Nowadays the share of Abkhasia in the Russian import made just over 1,2% (by figures of 2013).

All mandarin varieties are divided into three groups:
- The first group consists of heat-loving mandarin orange varieties.
- The second one includes the heat-loving, small-leaved tangerines or so called Italian mandarins.
- The third group includes Satsuma oranges. Their native country is Japan. They are cold resistant. This variety also is grown on the Black Sea coast. This type has less seeds, that’s why it’s called seedless.
Also there are some hybrids gotten after mixing mandarins & other fruit. The most popular of them is clementine, the hybrids of mandarin & Seville orange. Its fruit are poppy red, deep-flat & flavourful.
