These Murcotts or Delite Mandarins are a cross between a tangerine and a sweet orange. In 1922, Mr. Charles Murcott Smith owned a nursery in Bayview, Florida where he developed several trees that he had gotten from the USDA.

Today, the Florida-grown fruit is marketed under the name Honey Tangerine, while the “Delite” name is a trademarked name of this wonderful California variety. A late-season mandarin, these California Murcotts should not be confused with the Honey variety out of Florida, as the latter can be very seedy. Rather flat in shape, the Murcott is an easy to peel fruit, making it popular with children.

For the juiciest, sweetest fruit, look for Murcotts with a sweet, clean fragrance. Store at cool room temperatures for up to one week or refrigerate for up to two weeks.

The following prohibit the shipment of any citrus into their state: Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, and Hawaii.

This item is perishable and must ship at least 2nd Day.
