Mandarins on tree Mildura

Mandarins

Mandarins are one of Australia’s most beloved citrus fruits. We grow Australia’s favourite mandarin varieties, focusing on easy peel and seedless, which are most popular in both local and export citrus markets.

Imperial

Golden orange colour with some seeds. Imperial mandarins have a thin skin making them easy to peel.

Afourer

Also known as W.Murcott or Nadorcott mandarins, this variety has a deep red-orange colour with very few seeds. Exceptionally juicy and easy to peel. Most of Nutrano's Afourer mandarin crop is grown and sold as seedless.

Hickson

Hickson mandarins have a high juice content with a deep orange/red flesh.

Murcotts

A late season mandarin with a high juice content. Firm smooth skin. These are favourite amongst our Australian citrus growers and the citrus export market alike.

tips

Our citrus growers recommend mandarins with a smooth skin and a bright glossy orange colour. Choose heavier fruits as they will be juicer and packed with flavour.

Lemons

Our citrus growers have perfected the lemon production process, growing some of Australia’s finest lemon varieties. We are famous for the high quality of our locally-grown lemons, and are incredibly proud of the exceptional quality and scale of both our seeded and seedless lemons.

Eureka Lemons

Eureka Lemons have smooth thin skin with a high juice content.

Wax Free Lemons

Wax Free Lemons have a natural appearance, just like homegrown lemons.

tips

To extract the most juice, roll your lemons on the kitchen bench before cutting them in half.

Lemon juice and zest adds a healthy and delicious zing to meals, and helps to reduce intake of salt, fat and sugar.

Cara Cara

A natural offshoot of the Washington navel orange, Cara Cara oranges have red flesh and a sweet flavour.

Blood oranges

Blood Oranges are known for their distinctive dark maroon colour flesh and dark orange skin.

Valencia

Valencia oranges are sweet and juicy, and the perfect choice for juicing.

tips

Look for glossy fruit that feels heavy. This means they are full of juice and flavour.

Grapefruit

Grapefruits are a tropical citrus fruit renowned for their sweet and somewhat sour taste. Our growers are able to produce this highly nutritious fruit throughout every season, providing our customers with the highest quality product year-round.

Ruby Red

Red flesh grapefruit with a pink blush on the skin. This variety is slightly more sweet than the white flesh grapefruit.

Marsh

These grapefruits have high acidity and are commonly enjoyed at breakfast.

tips

Similarly to oranges, you want a grapefruit to be slightly oval in shape, as overly round citrus fruits are likely to be bitter and underripe.
