Calling all Californians: You lucky ducks can snag these juicy gems locally. The rest of us will find them plucked from West Coast trees and shipped during the spring months. So why should you opt for the tangerine rather than other, better-known citrus offerings? Their flesh is darker than most, meaning more beta-carotene is naturally present in the fruit. Plus, snacking on these can help strengthen your vision, boost your immune function, and lower your risk of heart disease. And the bonus? The delicious, tangy-sweet flavor!
