Mandarin Orange 1 - Mandarina 1

Mandarin oranges, mandarinas, are my favorite early winter fruit. They make me think of Christmas, and I buy many kilograms of them every year while they are fresh and in season. The only problem is that eating them is a little messier because of the seeds.

I love their tart flavor. Each juicy piece of this fruit should be cherished. In Mandarina 1, I'm celebrating its general form and beauty. Mandarins are unique and compelling. I love the perfume of the fruit as it is peeled too. It is so intoxicating.
