Mandarin oranges are little segments of citrus flavor suitable for salads, vegetables, main dishes and, can’t forget, desserts. Although mostly used in canned form, you may have eaten a fresh mandarin orange and not even realized it.
The terms "mandarin orange" and "tangerine" are often used interchangeably, particularly outside the US. This might be confusing, because although a tangerine is a mandarin orange, not all mandarin oranges are tangerines. Tangerines are the most common variety of fresh mandarin orange found in the US.
