The Month of Fruits

Sunday, December 4th, 2011

Tangerine comes from tropical Asia. It is believed that it was named after the color of the costumes used by the mandarins, rulers of ancient China. In some Latin American countries is called China orange. We can say that is a fruit native to China and Indochina. Its cultivation was introduced in Europe in the nineteenth century. (via wikipedia)

These days in Guatemala, where Christmas is coming, we eat lots of fruit, particularly grapes but other citrus fruits are not left behind.
