Sunburst tangerine (Citrus reticulata cv. Sunburst) belongs to the Rutaceae (the Citrus family). It is a small evergreen tree that was produced in 1961 from a cross of the citrus hybrids Robinson and Osceola. The oblate fruit is around 6-8 cm in diameter. The skin is brilliant dark orange, smooth, and fairly thin, and like most tangerines, easy to remove. The flesh has few seeds and a lot of juice, and tastes intensely sweet with some acid.
