What to know about tangerines

Mandarins are small, juicy oranges grown in many parts of the world. They are smaller and rounder than regular oranges and their peel is easily removed. There are many different types of mandarins, such as clemenules, satsumas, tangerines and cuties.

They have a sweet and sour taste and are less acidic than ordinary oranges. They are often eaten raw, but can also be made into jams, marmalades, juices and desserts.

They are available year-round, but the main harvest season varies by variety and growing region. In the U.S., the main harvest season for mandarins is between November and April.

Mandarins also make a good snack on the go.
