Kin’s Fresh Murcott
W. Murcott Mandarins, or Murcotts as they are commonly known, are well loved for their sweet and tender fruits that burst with juicy orange goodness. They are delightful eaten fresh, or you can add their brightly coloured segments into a salad for a refreshing twist. Murcotts make excellent jams, curds and tarts; and they play well with spices such as cinnamon and cardamom.
Don’t miss this season’s must-try orange variety—just look for their golden orange skins!
Look and feel of Murcott Mandarin oranges you want to take home
Here are a few tips to help you select the Murcotts you would want to take home.
- The skin is vivid orange in colour with no bruise or soft spots.
- The stem is bright green colour. You may find the fruit without a stem, this is not necessary indicates poor quality.
- The fruit should be heavy for its size – this indicates the juice content. In other words, the fruit is not dry inside.
Kin’s Keeping Them Fresh
We recommend storing our Murcott Mandarin oranges inside the fridge. They last up to 2 weeks in a cool and dry environment.
