This fruit is a hybrid of the mandarin and orange and possesses their characteristics. It is as small as a mandarin, with a thin peel, while its flavour and colour are similar to those of the orange.
We use a special hybrid: that of Lentini (a town below Mount Etna), which enables us to obtain an acidulous ingredient due to the high pH value of this variety, with quite original aftertastes.

Recommended in combination with "crema", armagnac or Passito di Pantelleria ice-creams.
