Orri Mandarin

Pomegranate
Orri Mandarin is a late season mandarin with exceptional sweetness,
but enough acidity to give fine,
well balanced flavors.
Orri is a seedless variety with a lovely skin, bright orange color, thin but has a firm feel, smooth, glossy and easy to peel. At its best, Orri is simply irresistible with a fine juicy flesh and gorgeous sweetness.

Origin
 
Orri is an Israeli variety from the famous Volcani Institute. Orri is a protected and registered name for cultivation and marketing purposes. The name Orri translates from Hebrew to mean “my light”.
Late in season:
 
Orri tangerines were selected for retail markets as the fruits arrive during a time in the citrus season when the main mandarin varieties have disappeared. This late-season arrival also reduces competition in markets, allowing Orri tangerines to rise in popularity.
Nutritional Value
 
Orri tangerines are sold as a fresh eating variety and are grown and exported worldwide as a specialty citrus.
Orri tangerines are an excellent source of vitamin C to strengthen the immune system while reducing inflammation and fiber to regulate the digestive tract. The variety also provides potassium to balance fluid levels within the body, vitamin A to maintain healthy organ functioning, calcium to build strong bones and teeth, and other nutrients, including iron, magnesium, and folate.
Cultural History

Orri tangerines grown in Tel Aviv-Yafo are often branded Jaffa Orri or under the more general name of Jaffa oranges. Jaffa is an ancient port city within Tel-Aviv-Yafo and is also one of the oldest towns in the world, mentioned in the Old and New Testament as “Joppa.” Oranges have been grown in Jaffa since the 19th century and the “Jaffa” brand name was first recorded in 1870. In the 1930s, Jaffa was famous worldwide for its orange production, and the city even began calling itself “The Big Orange”.

In Biblical times, Jaffa was the region where Jonah was believed to have been swallowed by the whale in the Old Testament. In Greek mythology, Andromeda was tied to the rocks as a sacrifice to Poseidon on the coast of Jaff. Legend has it that Cassiopeia, the queen of king Cepheus of Jaffa, boasted that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than Poseidon’s daughters. In a wave of fury, Poseidon sent a storm and giant sea monster to destroy Jaffa. King Cepheus eventually sacrificed his daughter to lessen Poseidon’s rage by tying her to rocks off the coast of Jaffa. As the sea monster was closing in on Andromeda, Perseus, the son of Zeus, was flying by on his winged horse Pegasus and noticed the maiden in peril. He instantly fell in love with Andromeda and saved her from the sea monster by chopping off the monster’s head. Andromeda and Perseus were later wed and the rocks that are still standing today at Jaffa are a symbol of their love.
