Japanese Kiyomi Orange
Kiyomi Orange is a hybrid of “Miyakawa Hayao” and “Trovita Orange” from Satsuma Mandarin. It is often sold under the name of Kiyomi Tangor, and is the mother of “Dekopon,” “Harumi,” and “Setoka,” which have been in high consumption in recent years. It was registered as Tangor Norin No. 1 in 1979, and was named “Kiyomi” after Kiyomigata, a scenic spot that spreads out in the hometown.
It has a high sugar content and a moderate acidity, and the flesh is pulpy, soft and rich in juice. The orange scent is peculiar to Kiyomi and also has a harder skin particularly than most varieties, hence able to be stored longer without concern on easy spoilage.
