Mid-March is the perfect time to compare the eating qualities of these three excellent mandarins. For me in San Diego County, their harvest seasons all begin around February, and by now they are approaching the apex of their flavor potential. So let’s pick, peel, and taste. Maybe one of these sounds like a tree you want to grow.

If you’d like one of these trees and your local nursery doesn’t carry them, consider ordering from Burchell Nursery or Four Winds Growers.
