The Murcott tangerine can be distinguished from other varieties by its pebbled peel that clings to its segmented flesh. It is not easy to peel and can bear numerous small seeds. Its golden orange skin is thin and fragrant and its flesh is bright orange, juicy and sweet. Because its flesh is laden with seeds, it is preferred as a juicing tangerine.
Murcott tangerines are available from mid-winter until early spring.
Murcott tangerines are a late maturing tangerine that are sometimes mislabeled as "honey" tangerines and "Smith" tangerines. The Murcott tangerine is the hybrid result from a citrus breeding program within The United States Department of Agriculture. The documentation of its exact parentage is limited.
