Tango

Tango

Tango is a cross between a tangerine and a sweet orange. A late-season mandarin, these California Tangos should not be confused with the Honey variety out of Florida, as the latter can be very seedy. Rather flat in shape, the Tango is an easy to peel fruit, making it popular with children. For the juiciest, sweetest fruit, look for Tangos with a sweet, clean fragrance.

Store at cool room temperatures for up to one week or refrigerate for up to two weeks.
