Fresh mandarins are so sweet and tasty that it's easy to forget that they're also good for you. The mandarin is a small, seedless, thick-skinned citrus fruit that is easier to peel than an orange, making it a very popular fruit to eat on the go. It's a well-known fact that mandarins are an excellent source of Vitamin C. One small-sized piece of this fruit can provide 25% of the daily Vitamin C recommended dose. Vitamin C is great for skin health, wound healing, and immune function. In addition to eating fresh in hand, mandarins are a healthy way to add flavor to your favorite salads, entrees, and desserts. They can be stored at room temperature and will last up to one week. If you store them in the refrigerator, they can last up to six weeks. Mandarins start appearing in late fall and are in peak season from October to January.
