Tango tangerines are medium in size, averaging 6 centimeters in diameter, with a squat shape and smooth skin. They have a thin orange rind that is easy to peel, rich in volatile oils and aromatic. Tango tangerines have a juicy flesh that is seedless, and offer a sweet-tart flavor.
Tango tangerines are available in the late winter and through the early spring months.
Tango tangerines, also known as Tango mandarins, were the result of selective breeding by the University of California Riverside's Citrus Breeding Program. Botanically, they are classified as Citrus reticulata. Tango tangerines were developed from W. Murcott mandarins, in an effort to produce a seedless variety.
Tango tangerines are an excellent source of vitamin C and folate, and also contain dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, vitamin A, and beta carotene. Tango tangerines are a good source of antioxidants.
Tango tangerine can be used in both fresh and cooked applications. Whole segments can be used in sauces and salads, and chopped segments can be used in salsas, baked goods, and syrups. The juice and zest are ideal for cocktails, sangria, marinades, dressings, curds, and sauces. Tango tangerines pair well with poultry, seafood, and pork. They also compliment arugula, basil, mint, turmeric, ginger and chocolate. Their sweet-tart flavor balances peppery, bitter, creamy or fatty, and salty flavors. Store Tango tangerines for up to two weeks in the refrigerator.
Tango tangerines are one of several varieties marketed as Delite, Pixie or Cutie mandarins.
Tango tangerines were first introduced in 2006, after 8 years of testing and trials. They are predominately grown in California's San Joaquin Valley, also known as the nation's salad bowl. Florida received trees as well, yet planting was delayed due to state quarantine laws.
