Page Mandarins will take center stage at various restaurants and bars this year as the 2017 Citrus Celebration organized by Limehouse Produce officially kicks off. The annual promotion puts attention on citrus that is available during the winter months and this year the focus is on the page mandarin which is a cross between a Minneola Tangelo and a Clementine Mandarin, making it essentially ¾ mandarin and ¼ grapefruit by ancestry. The grapefruit gene gives this sweet and easy-to-peel fruit a more complex flavor that the super sweet clementine, lending itself to tart cocktails, winter salads and palate cleansing pastries.

The public can vote on their favorites on and then go try them firsthand at the participating restaurants. They can then post photos of dishes and drinks with the hashtag #citruscelebration for a chance to win a gift certificate at a winning location.

During the week of February 20, a panel of judges will taste the finalists’ entries in person to determine the Best Drink and Best Dish. Each winner will be promoted on the website, social media outlets, and to the media. The restaurant with the winning dish will be featured on the back page of Charleston City’s Paper’s DIRT and the winning drink will be featured in a ½ page ad in The Local Palate.
