Tangerine is a loose-skinned variety of ORANGE, native to China, but now grown in many other orange-producing count-ries.

The fruit has a bright, thin, orange-coloured skin and is slightly flattened and circular in shape. The flesh is sweeter and juicier than that of the orange.

Tangerines are generally eaten raw as a dessert fruit, but they may also be cooked and, providing additional pectin is used, in making jams and jellies. Canned tangerines are widely available.
