Botany
Tangerines botanically belong to the shrub berry fruits and are quite different in their sizes, which can reach from medium to big.

From experience, we know that the smaller ones are often particularly more aromatic.
The number of seed cores varies as well. Some fruits have little to almost no seeds and
the others have some to many.
Mother Nature lets the fruits grow to her whims.
That is why we generally assume that our tangerines do have cores.

But it is said that the name Tangerine (formerly Tangor) comes from the harbor of Tangier in Morocco,
because the first fruits came from Morocco and were shipped across the harbor in Tangier.
