Orri (Or)

The Or, Orr or Orri is a late season mandarin with exceptional sweetness, but enough acidity to give a fine, well balanced flavour. Orri is mostly seedless and is a wonderful variety to extend the season of easy-peelers once the main clementine varieties have finished. The skin is a lovely colour, being thin and quite easy to remove. There can be a slight oily residue on peeling, but really it is a sign of things to come.
