According to genetic examinations, the mandarin (Citrus Reticulata) was one of the original citrus species; through breeding or natural hybridization, it is the ancestor of many hybrid citrus cultivars.
With the citron and pomelo, it is the ancestor of the most commercially important hybrids (such as sweet and sour oranges, grapefruit, and many lemons and limes).
The mandarin has also been hybridized with other citrus varieties, such as the desert lime and the kumquat. Though the old mandarin was bitter, most commercial mandarin strains derive from hybridization with pomelo, which gave them a sweet fruit.
