Mandarin oranges (tangerines) are popular in winter

We eat mandarin oranges (we call them “mikan”) in winter a lot. They are knows as winter fruit in Japan. Almost every house has mandarin oranges at home in the season.

People regardless of age or sex love mandarin oranges as they are easy to eat and are a good source of vitamin C. And the most important thing….the taste, is very good. Some are not sweet enough, though most are very sweet and that’s why people can’t stop to eat mandarin oranges!

Of course people don’t eat an outer skin, though some people are very artistic that they make a shape with a skin like animal’s shape. I can’t do it….so it’s so impressive thing to me!
