The Tangerine is a small evergreen citrus tree that produces fruit that look like smaller, slightly flattened oranges. Tangerines are a type of Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) and are very similar to them, with the primary difference being that Tangerines sometimes have a more reddish tint to their skin. Tangerines have a sweet, strong taste and pebbly-skin that peels easily. Trees have dark green, glossy leaves, some thorns, and star-shaped white flowers.

They are one of the more cold hardy citrus varieties, but are damaged by temperatures below -3.8° C.
