Gold Nugget tangerines are also known as Gold Nugget mandarins and come into season when many other mandarin varieties are leaving the market. The variety’s long harvest season and ability to store well on the tree provides fresh, tender fruits into the summer season.
Gold Nugget tangerines have a sweet flavor and juicy consistency well-suited for fresh preparations. The fruits can be easily peeled and consumed straight, out-of-hand, or they can be tossed into green and fruit salads, blended into smoothies and shakes, or incorporated into grain and cereal bowls. Gold Nugget tangerines are also a popular juicing variety, using the liquid in cocktails, sparkling beverages, fruit punches, or mixing into dressings, sauces, and marinades.
