Mandarin festival coming Nov. 19-21

By Chris Macias

For lover of citrus fruit, fall means that it's time to peel some mandarins and enjoy that sweet, tangy fruit. And you have a chance to do plenty of that from Nov. 19 - 21, with the 17th Annual Mountain Mandarin Festival at the Gold Country Fairgrounds (1273 High St., Auburn). You'll find cooking demonstrations, entertainment and more citrus than you can stomach in a single setting.

As for this year's mandarin crop, the bounty is expected to be lighter than the previous year. Mandarin trees tend to bear bigger harvests in alternate years, and 2010 is one of those off seasons. But there will still be plenty of fruit to go around. Here are the details:
