by Tangerines are a close relative of oranges, and contain all of the same beneficial effects. The name tangerine is supposedly derived from Tangier, Morocco. Tangerines are loose-skinned, peeling as easily as a glove off your hand. Consequently, they were dubbed "kid-glove oranges" in Florida by Colonel George L. Dancy.

The season for marketing tangerines is from November through May. Peak months are in December and January.

Quality tangerines are heavy for their size, indicating ample juice content. Tangerines have a deep orange or almost red color.

Beneficial Effects

Tangerines are high in Vitamin C. Many of the fruit's bioflavenoids are located in the white pith and membranes. When juicing, peel off the outer layer, but leave the pitch attached for juicing.
