Our Product Review
We were fortunate enough to receive a free pack of new season Delite Mandarins in order to perform a product review. And the first thing I did was hook in without any thought of the review, I simply wanted a mandarin.
And from the first bite I new that these were a winner. I love my mandarins to be easy-peel, and these are just that, easy to peel sort off – the peel doesn’t exactly fall off the fruit, but it doesn’t stick either. And the bonus is you don’t have a whole lot of little pithy bits to pick off.
If size matters don’t be fooled by the exterior peel. If you compare figures 2 and 3 below you can see that despite the Imperial mandarin on the left being twice the size as the Delite on the right, the flesh inside is basically the same size.
And Delite mandarins are seedless, full of flavour, juicy, and sweet – far superior to other mandarin varieties.
Despite the sweetness, after eating a couple of Delite mandarins there was barely a flicker in my BSL, making them a good option for diabetics (see disclaimer).
Another great use for these mandarins is in school lunches. The size lends itself to fitting easily into a lunchbox and the kids wont have trouble peeling them. And did I mention they are sweet and juicy.
These mandarins are now my preferred citrus fruit, beating out any competition. I highly recommend you buy a bag and see for yourself.

New season Delite Mandarins are here! with some great new Recipe Ideas…
This season’s Delite Mandarins are now being harvested, and they’ll be available in Woolworths stores from next week.
And we’ve got a whole new range of Delite Mandarin Recipes for you…with some great ideas on how to add the enjoyment of Delite Mandarins to each meal.
The new season Delite Mandarins are sweeter, tastier and prettier than ever, because of favourable growing conditions in the Sunraysia.
Growers say the longer, warmer Summer weather in the Sunraysia has resulted in sweeter and tastier fruit. And a cold spell in Autumn has given the mandarins a deep orange colour with a smooth, glossy skin.
Thomas Braybrook, Farm Manager at Sunwest near Mildura, says the new season, all Australian, Delite Mandarins are a stand-out crop that are sure to delight consumers.
“The Summer weather in the Sunraysia region was longer and more consistently warm this year, with over 100 days of sunshine and temperatures above 30 degrees. Combined with a cold snap in Autumn, the growing conditions have helped us deliver superior fruit this season,” Mr Braybrook said.
Delite Mandarins at Sunwest are grown under shade-cloth, which not only protects them from pests, but also ensures they are naturally SEEDLESS.
Executive General Manager Marketing & Export at Nutrano Produce Group, Brett Jackson, is expecting record sales this season.
“With their EASY TO PEEL skins, and distinctive sweet fragrance, Delite Mandarins are the perfect fruit for school lunch boxes, and snacks on the go.
“And as a HEALTHY source of Vitamin C, what better way to help fight off the last of the winter colds and flu,” Mr Jackson said.
The new season Delite Mandarins will be available exclusively in Woolworths stores nationally from 8 August. Look out for loose Delite mandarins with blue Delite stickers or in 700g mesh bags.
