Product Description

The tangerine (Citrus tangerina)is an orange-colored citrus fruit which is closely related to the mandarin orange (Citrus reticulata). Tangerines are smaller than common oranges, and are easier to peel and to split into segments. The taste is sweeter and stronger, than that of an orange. Tangerines are most commonly peeled and eaten out of hand. The fresh fruit is also used in salads, desserts and main dishes. The peel is dried and used in Sichuan cuisine. Fresh tangerine juice and frozen juice concentrate are commonly available in the United States. Oranges have been cultivated for over 3,600 years in China. Tangerines are a good source of vitamin C, folate and beta-carotene.They also contain some potassium, magnesium and vitamins B1, B2 and B3. Also contains Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Tangerines can be grown outdoors, on the patio or indoors. The ‘Ponkan’ Tangerine is one of the oldest mandarin tangerines and remains one of the most popular varieties for the many attributes it brings to the landscape. Just for starters, when this citrus tree sets its blooms it attracts the North American Giant Swallowtail butterfly which uses it and other citrus trees for food in the larval stage. This upright, vigorous growing tree is one of the best for producing delectable fruit with very little seeds that are extremely easy to peel. Add some exotic flavor to your landscape or grow indoors and enjoy fresh fruit.
