- Store in fridge crisper, or very cool pantry, up to a week.
Did you know? The Ellendale is a cross between a mandarin and an orange. It is larger than the Imperial and has orange skin with orange flesh. It is also easy to peel. Other mandy varieties are the sweet, seedy Murcott (or Honey Murcott, Honey tangerine). The Daisy, Hickson, and Mystique are some other mandarin varieties that are grown in Australia.
