It's debatable. Pixie is lower in acidity than many other mandarins so the flavour is mild and a little bland for many palettes.
Wait for the first gold nuggets to hit the stores later this season. Similar looking, but bigger and far better flavour.

How do you know so much Boris? Where did you taste Pixie and Gold Nugget and made such an incisive comparison?

Ivepeters, I haven't seen suntina. But it looks to be an Israeli selection (if not identical) of the old Nova mandarin which is part tangelo.

It is characterized by its medium to large size, high sugar content, low acidity and attractive orange color.The Suntina is available in WA only from January to Mid February '

I was wanting to alert readers of the value of Pixie mandarin, available from Daleys. This message was swamped by a bunch of self- promoters who appear to have no first hand knowledge of the matter in hand but saw an opportunity to announce "I'm this amazing guy, see" So if you have no direct knowledge and you are doing a "cut and paste" have the integrity to say just that.

I tried some Pixie last week, nice mandarin, not vastly different to Imperial etc I thought, maybee a little less acid? aka no surprise flavors as in other Hybrid mandarins/ tangelo backcrosses.
These were straight off the tree, not off supermarket shelf, and not imported after their free round the world cruise, which can make a big difference to any mandarins flavour.
Also Pixie is one that has been dropped off the Auscitrus bud list, so will be harder to find in the future.

Kert and your other jekyll and hyde personas, ie Terrence, yrt,are a dead give away. Trying to be a hobnob doesn't help.
Let me indulge in a bit of cutting and pasting.
kert (Sydney) starts with ...
I have a Pike and Hawaiian Supreme White Sapotes side by side. The Haw Sup . produces walnut sized fruit with an aborted seed. Has anyone grown a full sized Hawaiian Supreme fruit; and what did you have for a cross pollina
Fast foward to Terrence (Vaucluse)
My Hawaiian Supreme has always produced walnut sized fruit despite lots of X pollinators. has anyone grown anything worthwhile from the Hawaiian Disappointment.

That is a bit disappointing.

Now that the government has stepped away from variety importation and development to a large extent, all the more reason for interested gardeners to keep things going :)

At least with tools like this forum it's a lot easier than in the past.
