The Murcott tangerine's origins began in the early 1900's at a breeding nursery in Florida. Murcott tangerine trees were created from budwood by Charles Murcott Smith. Murcott tangerines are medium-sized, round and slightly flattened at both ends. They are about 5 centimeters in diameter and have a golden orange skin with subtle pebbling. The rind is thin and fragrant and clings to the flesh, making them moderately easy to peel. The pulp is bright orange and juicy with a rich, sweet flavor. Murcott tangerines can be seedless or may have up to a dozen small seeds. Murcott tangerines are available in the winter months. Murcott tangerines are used primarily for their juice due to their high seed content. Restaurants currently purchasing this product as an ingredient for their menu.
