Orri mandarins

Orri Mandarins

The Or, Orr or Orri is a favorite part of the Fruitfactor assortment! It’s a mandarin with exceptional sweetness, but enough acidity to give a fine, well balanced flavour. Orri is mostly seedless and is a good variety to extend the season of easy-peelers once the main Clementine varieties have finished. The skin is a lovely colour, being thin and very easy to remove. There can be a slight oily residue on peeling, but really it is a sign of things to come. At its best, Orri is simply irresistible with fine, juicy flesh and gorgeous sweetness.


Or is an Israeli variety from the famous Volcani Institute: an induced mutation of Ora, an Ortanique, which itself is a hybrid of Temple and Dancy. There are nine selections of Or, and Or 4 has been named Orri mandarins. Orri is a protected and registered name for cultivation and marketing purposes.
