Mt. Ida Man­darin Ranch in Oroville sells great tast­ing, seed­less Sat­suma man­darins dur­ing the Novem­ber through Decem­ber man­darin sea­son. The orchard offers three vari­eties of Sat­sumas on the prop­er­ty, and the Owari man­darins are the vari­ety it ships in their gift pack­ages. They are very sweet, easy to peel, and excel­lent for eat­ing or juic­ing. All of the man­darins are tree-ripened, hand-picked, and shipped the day they come off the tree. Mt. Ida Man­darin Ranch does not use any arti­fi­cial ripen­ers and does not refrig­er­ate the fruit, ensur­ing the best and fresh­est nat­u­ral­ly ripened fruit available.

Check the web­site every fall to get the lat­est infor­ma­tion on this year’s har­vest sea­son, exact open­ing dates, and availability.
