- ―The description of interstellar garden salad in the menu from Dex's
Mandalorian oranges were a type of fruit used in cooking. The eatery known as Dex's Diner located in the CoCo Town district of the planet Coruscant and owned by the Besalisk chef Dexter Jettster, served the oranges as part of a dish named interstellar garden salad, which he considered delicious. The salad also included crisp Revwien lettuce, topatoes, space carrots, Qiraadishes, Sriluurian raisins, and Wol Cabasshews, with Luptoomian dressing and the option to add grilled Gornt meat for an extra credit. The salad cost 5.7 credits and was the most popular salad served at Dex's, which was destroyed during the first two years of the Galactic Empire's rule. The Mandalorians with which the fruit shared its name were a warrior culture based around the planet Mandalore.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Mandalorian oranges were first mentioned in the 2009 StarWars.com Hyperspace exclusive article, Dining at Dex's, which was written by Gregory Walker as an in-universe menu for Dex's Diner. The article did not make any connection between the oranges and Mandalore or the Mandalorians apart from the fruit's name.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Last of the Jedi: Underworld, which The Essential Reader's Companion dates to around 18 BBY, establishes that Dex's Diner was destroyed by the Galactic Empire. The New Essential Chronology dates the Empire's formation to 19 BBY, so Dex's Diner was destroyed either during 19 BBY or 18 BBY.
