Imperial mandarins are the most popular variety because they are the first to be harvested each season. They are a golden-orange mandarin, and one of a handful of popular citrus varieties that have originated in Australia. Imperials are easy to peel, have very few seeds, and can be enjoyed as a perfect portable snack. Mandarines are nearly always eaten fresh, partly because they are so conveniently designed for it, and partly because their sweet flavour, lacking the acid edge of orange, does not come through well in cooking, though it can be successful if the rind is used too. To Store: Mandarines will keep in good condition in a bowl at room temperature for up to a week, but keep an eye on them for mold. For longer storage, store in the fridge crisper for up to 2 weeks.
