appearance, weight and taste
We examine Mandarin. It's rind must be intact, without dents and stains. If palpated the soft spots, the fruit was defrosted or started to rot.
We continue to explore the peel: if it is clear that between her and the flesh there is already a space, then the ripe tangerine, if the peel is tight to the lobules, most likely the Mandarin is not yet gospel.
Weigh the tangerine in his hand. A ripe tangerine will always be much heavier than unripe.
The most reliable way to choose Mandarin to try it. Feel free to try without fear of fat – the calorie content of oranges is very low.
We wish you the most delicious tangerines! Bon appétit!
