A variety of mandarin orange that is a cross between a tangerine and a sweet orange. They have a very sweet flavor and are very juicy. Their bumpy skin is tight-fitting in comparison to other mandarins. The ortanique has a round, slightly flattened shape. Ortaniques are hard to find due to the fact that they are mostly produced in Jamaica. Producers have tried to grow them in Florida and California with little luck in producing the same sweet flavor as the fruit grown in Jamaica. Ortaniques are available from February through April.
