Tangerines

TangerinesThis is going to be a week of buying fruits.  They’re displayed in abundance on many fruit stalls all around.

Today we bought some tangerines.  These are tasty and sweet.

The tangerine is a type of mandarin orange.  As a citrus fruit, it is rich in Vitamin C, folate, and beta-carotene.

Tangerines are not peeled, they are pegged to remove the outer skin and the white strands are then removed from each segment or peg before it is eaten.

I don’t think you can ever be satisfied with having one tangerine; eating one of these fruits usually leads to eating another and then another.
