Ponkan Tangerine Tree â€“ Citrus reticulataâ€˜
One of the oldest and most popular mandarin tangerines, due to itâ€™s rich sweet flavor. Thought to have originated in India, the Ponkan tangerine tree is distinctive for its oblate shape fruit, often having a short â€œcollarâ€ or neck. The sweet, tender, juicy flesh is pleasantly aromatic and has a rich, bright orange color. It is by far our best flavored tangerine. Fruit contains few seeds. Ripening early itâ€™s a good choice for short season areas. Ripens November to January.
