PERFECTION TANGERINE

GROWER

POLITO FAMILY FARMS

Current Facts
The perfection tangerine was never released to the public by the University of Riverside. Polito Farms participated in a test study and the few trees they planted via the University still grow and produce the commercially unreleased tangerine today.

Description/Taste
The perfection mandarin is seedless in all conditions. It is rounded vs. flattened in shape and it has a thin, medium-orange colored rind. Its flesh is extremely juicy and its flavor rich and sweet. Its name speaks for the fruit perfectly.  Check out its perfection for yourself…
