Tangerine is a fruit that comes from China and has very ancient origins. It has a flattened globose shape, with a fairly thin skin and many segments covered with a thin white film. The pulp, sweet and juicy, often contains numerous seeds.
This fruit is harvested in winter and in fact can be found on the market between December and February. In addition to being a fresh fruit, the mandarin is highly appreciated in liquor and pastries.There is also a variety of Chinese mandarin called Kumquat.
