Mandarin Oranges Grown In Garden Of Chinese Family, Ready In Boxes For Collection By Merchants.

Picture of mandarines stacked up in room of home of Chinese family living on river bank.


Stacks of mandarin oranges in a building of a Chinese family, were in the process of being put in boxes ready for collection by a wholesaler. Growing the mandarin oranges on their land was a source of income for them, but the price they would have for the mandarin oranges would be very low in comparison to the cost of buying the mandarins from a shop. Mandarin oranges are now getting more popular in the UK as they are advertised as being easy to peel, and sweet to the taste. How fresh they are would depend on how many miles they would have travelled from the growers to the shops. There was no doubt about the freshness of the mandarins stacked in the building we visited, and the sweet smell of the oranges filled the air.
