When it comes to choosing the perfect tangerines, certain factors play a crucial role in determining their sweetness and quality. SSPDaily has told you about such important aspects as weight, peel condition, aroma and firmness that you should pay attention to when buying this fruit.

Choose ripe tangerines

It is important to look for fruit that is heavy for its size, as this indicates its juiciness. The peel should be smooth, firm, free of spots and soft areas. Choose tangerines with a deep orange colour, as this indicates ripeness.

Tangerines with a greenish tint should be avoided as they may not be fully ripe. Also, make sure that the fruit gives way slightly when squeezed gently, but should not be too soft to ensure that its sweetness and quality are retained.

Inspect the end of the stem

Look for those that have a small, tightly fitting pocket on the stem, as this indicates that the fruit has not dried out. On the other hand, a loose or drooping stalk may indicate that the tangerine is no longer as fresh and juicy.

Smell the tangerine

A sweet, fragrant aroma indicates that the fruit is ripe. The aroma of a tangerine is a crucial factor in determining its flavour and plays an important role in the selection process.

Check for firmness

When choosing sweet tangerines, gently press the skin around the fruit. It should be firm and slightly springy, but not too hard or soft. This aspect indicates that the tangerine is ripe and ready to eat.
