Tangerine facts

  • The name was first used for fruit coming from Tangier, Morocco, described as a mandarin variety
  • Under the Tanaka classification system, Citrus tangerina is considered a separate species
  • Under the Swingle system, tangerines are considered to be a group of mandarin (C
  • reticulata) varieties
  • While tangerines genetically resemble mandarins, the genetics are still not thoroughly studied
  • The term is currently applied to any reddish-orange mandarin (and, in some jurisdictions, mandarin-like hybrids, including some tangors), but the term "tangerine" may yet acquire a definite genetic meaning
  • Tangerines are smaller and less rounded than common oranges
  • The taste is considered less sour, as well as sweeter and stronger, than that of an orange
  • A ripe tangerine is firm to slightly soft, heavy for its size, and pebbly-skinned with no deep grooves, as well as orange in color
  • The peel is very thin, with very little bitter white mesocarp, which makes them usually easier to peel and to split into segments
