Tangerines are smaller than oranges with bright orange skins and slightly looser peels than oranges. Both the flesh and peel are highly nutritious. You can enjoy tangerines as a snack on the go, blend them into a refreshing juice or smoothie, or use them to make a sweet jam or salad dressing. Tangerines are a type of mandarin, the second-largest cultivated citrus fruit after oranges.
