where to find JAPANESE mandarin oranges

Hello, I am originally from the West and this time of year there are always Japanese Mandarin oranges available at all the supermarkets. Here in Montreal, I have only seen clementines from Morocco, Spain etc. but they do not at all have the same taste. Anyone ever come across the Japanese variety?

  1. While not quite the same, the Ottawa T&T is carrying Taiwanese ponkan (Chintese honey tangerine) for $1.99/lb. Ponkan is also grown in Miyazaki prefecture.

    Granted, it's a 2+ hour drive to get them, but you can make a shopping day of it.

      I too am from the West and miss Japanese Mandarin, so much better than clementines. My daughter bought a box of Chinese Mandarins last week from PA on Parc and they were good.
