Orri tangerines are small to medium in size, averaging 4-6 centimeters in diameter, and are round to oblate in shape with a plump appearance. The smooth, bright orange skin is thin, easy-to-peel, and is covered in many prominent glands that release fragrant essential oils leaving a light oily residue across the surface. Underneath the skin, a thin layer of spongy, white pith loosely clings to the flesh being easily removed, and the flesh is juicy, orange, virtually seedless, and divided into 12-14 segments by thin membranes. Orri tangerines have a balanced flavor with even levels of tartness, acidity, and sweetness.
Orri tangerines are available in the winter through spring in the northern hemisphere, and in the summer through fall in the southern hemisphere.
Orri tangerines are botanically a hybrid that was created from budwood of the orah mandarin in Israel. Also known as the Jaffa Orri, Or mandarin, Orri mandarin, and Orr tangerine, Orri tangerines are a late-season variety that was created to have a long shelf life and have resilient skin that makes them suitable to survive transportation globally. Orri tangerines are one of the most popular mandarin varieties in Asia and are favored for their easy-to-peel, seedless nature, and balanced acidity and sweetness.
Orri tangerines are an excellent source of vitamin C and fiber and also contain vitamin A and potassium.
Orri tangerines are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking and stir-frying. The fruit’s balanced flavor makes them suitable for fresh eating, and they are often consumed as a snack, squeezed into juice, used in cocktails, or blended into smoothies. Orri tangerines can also be easily segmented and tossed into salads, folded into pitas, mixed into yogurt, used to flavor marinades and vinaigrettes, or chopped into salsa. In cooked preparations, Orri tangerine segments can be lightly stir-fried with noodles and vegetables, mixed in with teriyaki, or garnished over fish. Orri tangerines can also be incorporated into a variety of dessert recipes including crisps, parfaits, cakes, and compotes. Orri tangerines pair well with ginger, turmeric, red onion, beets, avocado, pineapple, kiwi, blueberry, strawberry, romaine lettuce, cilantro, maple syrup, honey, Dijon mustard, feta cheese, meats such as fish, grilled chicken, pork, and steak, almonds, and cashews. The fruit will keep 1-2 weeks when stored at room temperature in a cool and dry place and can also be placed in the refrigerator once ripe to extend the storage life for a couple of days.
Orri tangerines represent a new era of citrus that is developed specifically for global importing and exporting. Designed at the Volcani Center in Bet-Dagan near Tel-Aviv, the Agricultural Research Organization or ARO works closely with farmers, scientists, and breeders to create varieties that meet market demands with improved flavors. Orri tangerines were bred for their balanced flavor, tough but easy-to-peel skin, and seedless nature. These fruits are exported to regions across Europe, to the United States, and to Asia where they are one of the most popular mandarin varieties. In the United States alone, mandarin oranges make up approximately forty percent of the citrus market, and thousands of tons of mandarins are imported annually. Orri tangerines arrive later in the citrus season reducing the amount of competition and provide sweet tasting fruits for consumers. In the United States, mandarin oranges are becoming increasingly popular among families with children and are favored for their sturdy nature allowing the segments of the fruit to hold up well in desserts and salads.
Orri tangerines were developed at the Volcani Center of the Agricultural Research Organization in Israel beginning in 1989. Created from budwood of the orah mandarin which is a hybrid of multiple varieties, it took over thirty years to create Orri tangerines, and the fruits were selected and released to market in the early 2000s. Today Orri tangerines are predominately grown in Israel, but select growers have also been licensed in the United States, Spain, South Africa, and South America. Orri tangerines can be found at supermarkets and specialty grocers in Europe, especially in France, Spain, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Holland, the United States, Canada, South America, China, Japan, Russia, and South Africa.
