Oranges - Easy Peelers

There are several different varieties of 'easy peelers' which are available from October through May. The nickname "easy peelers" specifically includes mandarins and tangerines. They are a relatively small sized fruit, sweet tasting with a loose thin skin making them easy to peel. These are a convenient and popular snack with adults and kids.

Tangarines are available October through May. These typically reach their peak availability at Christmas time. This particular variety has a few small seeds in each segment.
