CITRUS

Varieties with orange-red peel are usually called tangerines. Many mandarins tend to bear heavily in alternate years. Some are always seedless, while others produce more seeds; the latter give seedier fruit if pollinated by another mandarin or mandarin hybrid or by ‘Valencia’ orange.

‘Shasta Gold’, ‘Tahoe Gold’, ‘Yosemite Gold’

Three recent introductions from the University of California. All produce large, seedless, deep orange fruit that is easy to peel and has a sweet, rich flavor. Ripen late winter to spring, ‘Tahoe Gold’ being the earliest of the three.
