MandaRosa® mandarins are a new hybrid variety that botanically belongs to the Rutaceae family. The late-season cultivar was developed in Italy from a cross between a tarocco blood orange and a clementine and is the result of years of breeding to create the first patented and naturally pigmented seedless mandarin. MandaRosa® mandarins are also known as a Mandared variety, and the name MandaRosa® stems from the word “rosa,” which means “pink” in Italian, a nod to the fruit’s colored flesh. MandaRosa® mandarins have been present in Italy under the name Mandared since the early 21st century, but the variety was just recently introduced to American markets under MandaRosa® at the beginning of 2020. MandaRosa® mandarins are only available for a short season and are considered a specialty variety, sold exclusively through the Pro Citrus Network based in California.
