Today we're going to be talking about how to pick out a fresh tangerine, honey tangerines. Good thing to look for is a little bit of green. You don't want to have any green. That means it's not going to be quite as ripe. Still got a little bit of time to go on that one. Also, want to stay from any kind of bruising such as that right there. Any kind of soft, brown spots. If you gave it a little squish, I mean, you get some kind of liquid coming out of there. You don't want anything wet, any soft spots, any kind of brown, anything like that. Sometimes there'll be little scars right in the sides. You don't, you want to stay away from that. The skin on these is pretty thin, so any kind of marks on the side probably went through and would make it not so fresh, and you wouldn't want to pick a, any kind of marked tangerine at all. Another thing to look for when picking out a tangerine, is they're all going to be roughly the same size. The larger ones, like this, have a lot thicker skin on them. So you're going, it's going to be smaller than it actually looks. Some of the thin ones are probably going to be a little bit crispier and fresh just because they don't have that thick skin on them. It will be real thin. You don't want them to be very soft. Soft is not the best thing to look for in tangerines. You want them to be kind of firm so it will be a little bit more crispy and solid and not quite mushy.
