Spring Sunshine is sweet, dense, intense late season mandarin with thin peel. The late harvest of this variety ensures that flavour and sweetness are influenced by the long-hanging of this variety on the tree. The peel is very smooth with prominent oil cells, and noticeably thin and tightly adherant to the segments. Peeling is easy enough, but the skin will break into pieces in the process. The fruit has good sweetness and a noticeable tang and is an attractive option for very late season mandarin.
Very few samples from Spain have been tested by Good Fruit Guide, but most have had a number of seeds (2-4) in each fruit.
