Ingerson Citrus is hoping a new variety of
mandarins will live up to their name, with
locally grown 'gold nuggets' expected to hit
Ingerson Citrus man-
aging director David
Ingerson said the future
of citrus, particularly
with new varieties such
as the gold nugget, was
"I am very excited
about them and we
probably have about the
third biggest planting of
them in Australia," Mr
"There are only six growers in the trial program."
Ingerson Citrus currently have about 12,000 gold
nugget trees, which are up to three years old.
Mr Ingerson said this meant this year's fruit would
be larger than usual as the trees were still young.
However, he said he could already see their potential.
This year, the gold nugget variety will travel to both
domestic and overseas markets to raise awareness of
the product before a large production next year.
"It will be a year of learning," Mr Ingerson said.
"They will be distributed around the markets... so
people become aware of the fruit and also to see how
The new variety, which is following the market
trend, is known for its easy peel, seedless and sweet
"The more mature trees in the US are getting brix
(a scale used to measure sugar content) as high as 17,
where as an afourer mandarin is about 12 to 14," he
said. "They have that extra sugar compared to a daisy
or pixie. The gold nuggets are just so much sweeter."
Mr Ingerson said while being popular with consum-
ers, there were other benefits to the new variety.
"They tend to grow in clusters and size is never an
issue with them," he said.
The late season variety was developed by the
University of California and is known for heavy crop-
Mr Ingerson said they were "not a pretty fruit at this
stage" as the coarseness of the rind can be a problem
in young trees, but decreases as they age and set more
fruit. Ingerson Citrus are expecting a crop of about
150 tonnes from the gold nuggets next year.
