Sorry! It is an avoid for O's.

Mandarine is not included in the TypeBase, but Tangerine is.

Other citrus which are not avoids for O: Lemon, Lime, Grapefruit, Pummelo.

The terms Mandarine and Tangerine are interchangeable as far as I can tell...  

It seems the Asian cultures call them mandarine oranges, while U.S. culture calls them tangerines.  In all of the citrus books I have read, and conversations with people of Asian heritage, we are referring to the same tree/fruit.

There's also a third name to the same fruit: Clementine.

Some sellers refer to them by each of their variety names rather than as tangerines...  I've seen them referred to as Clementines, Satsumas, Dancy, Honey, etc., but these are different varieties of Mandarine orange or tangerine.

Yes, thank you for correcting! In our yard (64 to 49 years ago) we had a Satsuma tree and a Washington (orange cultivar) tree, which ripened ealier than the other citrus cultivars. Their tastes were to me the best among all other citrus kinds. If I remember correctly, the Satsuma had no pips, or hardly any, while the clementine which came later was full of them.

Yes, the Satsuma mandarine is almost seed free...  A very wonderful flavored tangerine.

The Washington is a navel orange, which is a great eating orange.  I have been getting a bit of cross pollination between my Washington Navel and Satuma mandarine so I have gotten some navel tangerines...  Nature is wonderful.
