Tangerines

Tangerines

Tangerines have less vitamin C than oranges, but they are a better source of vitamin A.  Choose tangerines that are firm but not dried out.  Some varieties have a loose skin and may feel slightly soft.  They should feel heavy for their size.  See nutritional information below.
