  • The tangerine (Citrus tangerina) is an orange-colored citrus fruit that is closely related to, or possibly a type of, mandarin orange (Citrus reticulata).
  • The name was first used for fruit coming from Tangiers, Morocco, described as a mandarin variety. Under the Tanaka classification system, Citrus tangerina is considered a separate species.
  • Tangerines are smaller than common oranges, and are usually easier to peel and to split into segments. The taste is considered less sour, as well as sweeter and stronger, than that of an orange.
