The Dancy Tangerine is the classic tangerine that has been grown since about 1867. The tree itself bears thick, glossy, lance-shaped leaves among which bloom beautiful, strongly-scented flowers. The Dancy's evergreen branches are nearly thorn-less. The easy to peel fruit are flattened at each end with a thin, leathery, deep reddish-orange rind that is smooth and glossy. Medium sized fruit is easy to peel and usually eaten out of hand or used in fruit salads, desserts and main dishes. Easy to grow. Flesh is deeply orange in color and tender, with a rich flavor and moderate number of seeds.
