Limousin AOP Golden apples are the only apples in France to benefit from a ‘’Protected Designation of Origin’’ (PDO) label. Slightly elongated, pulp is white and firm, texture is crisp and juicy. Ortanique mandarin is a natural ''tangor'' (for tangerine and orange) that was first grown Jamaica. “or” stands for orange, “tan” for tangerine, and “ique” for unique. Its fruit is medium in size and obovate (flat) in shape. Pulp is orange-colored, tender, and very juicy. Its aroma is rich while its taste is sweet and surprisingly not very acidic for a citrus.
Apples provide a fair amount of vitamins, contain a dietary fiber pectin (known to lower cholesterol levels and help to prevent heart attacks). They also contain boron, which helps to build strong bones. They can be stored up to 3 months in a refrigerator. Mandarin is rich in vitamin C and A. Like other mandarins, they are a good source of dietary fibres and potassium. Satsuma Mandarins are an important source of antioxidants such as naringenin, naringin and pectin.
