Mikan is the most prestigious of Mandarin Oranges in Japan – sometimes known as the Imperial Mikan. Bathed in the sea breeze from the Gulf of Yuasa and the fine climate conditions, these mouthwatering Mikan are extremely juicy and flavorsome.
Mikan were introduced to Japan from China about 400 years ago, from where they traveled to the West and became known as mandarin oranges. Japan is a major mikan producer, and the mikan is one of only few Japanese fruits to be exported in considerable quantities. Wakayama and Ehime Prefectures are Japan’s top mikan producers.
