Gisborne’s golden rays
Jason Galloway is hugely proud of the Encore Mandarins he’s grown on his property in sunny Gisborne for the past 14 years. “Being outside in the sunshine, growing fruit that’s absorbing all the great Gizzy rays is what it’s all about,” he says.
Grown commercially only in the Gisborne region, Encore Mandarins are unique, with a flavour profile that sets them apart from the rest, says Jason. “Aromatic and juicy, they’re one of the sweetest things around!”
Jason reckons these miniature bundles of sweet, juicy goodness make a superconvenient on-the-go snack, healthy lunchbox filler and tasty addition to salads and desserts. Easy to peel, they also freeze well and make delicious ice cubes for refreshing summer drinks.
Low in fat and rich in vitamins A, B and C, plus minerals such as iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium, Encore Mandarins also boast a high fibre content of 14 percent.
