Orange is avoid for me, Tangarine is a diamond.

Q. Is a mandarin closer to a Tangarine or an Orange? Or is it different to both? How would I find out its status?

Unfortunately, it cannot be assumed to be more like one or the other. How SWAMI would rate it if it knew what this food is, is unknown.

Unrated foods are neutrals unless you have good reason to treat them differently.

The mandarin is one variety of orange.  The tangerine is a variety of mandarin orange.  So I’d treat it as neutral.  Why the varieties are rated differently, I don’t know.

Citrus deliciosa or reticulata,  Satsuma, Mandarino is the same in different languages; I regret I have it as an avoid !
No linked to orange if not the hybrid Clementines mandarancio in  Italian
just member of the citrus family as grapefruit.

You should use the rating of tangerine for mandarin orange.  According to my Sunset - How to Grow Fruits, Nuts and Berries book, Tangerine and Mandarin Orange are interchangeable terms...

I have always understood tangerine and mandarin oranges to be the same thing too.

Maria G.
Could you clarify your comment "No linked to orange if not the hybrid Clementines mandarancio in  Italian just member of the citrus family as grapefruit."
Are you saying clementines are part of grapefruit family?
I love clementines but assumed they are part of organge family making them avoid.
thanks Lin

I was just saying that all clementines mandarins and grapefruit are part of citrus family, Clementines are a hybrid with orange, mandarins, grapefruit and lemons aren't !

Thanks, for a moment I thought (hoped) I could eat clementines :(

Have been trying mandarins last 3 days as I seemed to do ok with oranges... Not sure if the reaction is related, but have been having *bad enough to keep me awake* sciatic type pain down back of left leg ::)

Am not usually that good with citrus, but as my skin had not broken out the way it does with most things I react to, I thought I was alright :-/

Only other thing different that I have tried recently is some allergy supps... They do have fenugreek in them which I did seem to react to when I had it as a dried herb?!

Interesting question.

http://www.differencebetween.com/difference-between-tangerine-and-vs-mandarin/



The essential oils of these two fruits' peels are somewhat different, too:
In terms of fragrance, Tangerine is more "rounded" and candy-sweet, while mandarin (and this is often split into "green mandarin" and "red mandarin") has an innately more complex and refined fragrance.
Medicinally, one tends to see Mandarin and not Tangerine prescribed.
Pricewise, Mandarin is usually quite a bit more expensive.

This from Kurt Schnaubelt: "True mandarin is distinguished from tangerine (from Florida) by the presence of small amounts of N-methylanthranilate, a nitrogen-containing ester with pronounced relaxing qualities. This compound is not present in tangerine oils."

Yes - very interesting, as I think even the food values linked above has them as the same?!

Further to my situation/reaction, my hip/leg pain has finally eased!! I haven't had mandarin since I posted (& never should have ::))

I had one more night of no sleep due to the pain & not being able to get comfortable in *any* position, but have now been able to sleep last 2 nights most of the night...

I just tried the allergy supps today (2 so far) & so far so good so pretty sure it was the mandarin (my *very* bad)
