Fairchild Tangerines

Fairchild Tangerines are a hybrid between an Orlando Tangelo and a Clementine.

They are a medium-sized citrus fruit with dark orange skin that peels easily. The skin can be a bit rough-textured at times.

Inside, the fruit is a bright orange with many seeds.

The tree is mostly thornless. The fruit ripens early.

History Notes

Fairchild Tangerines were developed by a JR Furr in California for growth in the semi-desert areas of California and Arizona. They were released commercially in 1964.
