A variety of Mandarine orange, a tangerine is a citrus fruit similar to most other oranges, but smaller, easier to peel, and a bit less tart. This fruit is usually peeled, and eaten raw as-is. It is also used in desserts, main dishes and salads.

Tangerines are high in folate, vitamin C, and beta-carotene.

A good tangerine should feel heavy for its size, a bit soft, and should have no deep grooves in the skin.
