Tangerine

The tangerine is the fruit of a tree, the mandarin, of the Rutaceae family (genus Citrus), somewhat smaller than the orange tree. The fruits (hesperides), smaller than the orange, are distributed in segments and have a pulp formed by vesicles full of very aromatic juice. The mandarin is mainly used as a fresh fruit, because of its pleasant taste and aroma. It can also be used in salads, due to the small size of its segments. The peel and the flowers contain essential oils of sedative action. The leaves contain a bitter principle that determines its use in infusion as a tonic and appetizer. It is used in candies and in syrup in confectionery. Also in the manufacture of jams, smoothies and sorbets.
