Varieties:

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.
