Wikipedia Abstract

The tangor (C. reticulata × C. sinensis) is a citrus fruit hybrid of the mandarin orange (tangerine, Citrus reticulata) and the sweet orange (Citrus sinensis). The name "tangor" is a formation from the "tang" of tangerine and the "or" of "orange". Also called the temple orange, its thick rind is easy to peel and its bright orange pulp is sour-sweet and full-flavoured.
