Dalandan orange?
« on: May 12, 2018, 11:03:43 AM »
I saw a soft drink today in the local super market that contains apple and a citrus fruit called "dalandan". I had never heard of a dalandan before and can't find much info about it. Based on one source it's some kind of citrus sinensis, another source states it's citrus aurantium and related to the valencia orange...?

Does anyone have more information on this variety?

The drink containing "dalandan" is more marketing than anything else. It is said to contain only 0.1% of it which is next to nothing...

...but I could be wrong...

Dalandan seems to be the Tagalog name for a local variety of Citrus aurantium grown in the Phillipines.
