LATIN NAME: Citrus Reticulata.


COMMON NAMES: mandarin orange, mandarin or mandarine.

BOTANICAL INFORMATION: A tree of small size, usually not exceeding 4 m in height; By the age of 30, however, can reach a five-meter height. Young shoots are dark green. The leaves are relatively small, ovoid or elliptical. The flowers are single or double in the axils of the leaves. Petals are matte-white, stamens are mostly with underdeveloped anthers and pollen. Fruits are multigranular and multisemant, 4-6 cm in diameter; slightly flattened from the base to the top, so that their width is noticeably greater than the height. The fruits have a thin peel, which is easily separated from the pulp.

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Fruit pulp contains sugars, organic acids (citric acid, etc., from 0.6 to 1.1%), vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, ascorbic acid, rutin). Up to 1-2% of essential (mandarin) oil, orange and yellow pigments, among them carotene, are found in the peel. The essential oil contains α-limonene, citral, caprylic and other aldehydes, alcohol; anthranilic acid methyl ester gives a peculiar taste and smell to mandarin oil, fruits, leaves and young shoots.

CONTRAINDICATIONS: Mandarins are contraindicated to people suffering from gastritis with high acidity and peptic ulcer. Mandarin like many citruses is a strong allergen. Experts recommend being very watchful when taking mandarins during pregnancy, breast-feeding and in childhood due to the possible occurrence of allergic reactions. Mandarin contains a lot of glucose, it increases the sugar content in the blood. Concentrated juice of mandarins adversely affects the tooth enamel.
