Tanzania tangerines (Citrus tangerine) or zambarau in Swahili are the hybrid cousin of the orange, usually on a smaller, less curved note. It possesses the same look like a mandarin including a bright orange skin. The only difference with other citrus fruits is that it has very sweet flesh, its skin peels quite naturally due to its thinness and its size is relatively small despite the heavy feel of the berry. It is essentially a cultivar of the mandarin, with the most separating factors being the more pronounced red-to-orange skin pigment and disease resistance.

Tangerines first grew perhaps in Morocco in the city of Tangier, which lent them the name. Their first unique cultivation as citrus in their own right was in the United States in the early 1840s. They may have come to Tanzania through Arab traders during the inter-coastal trade before the advent of Europeans.

Each serving of tangerine provides the body with 44 percent of the daily value of vitamin C for protection against diseases.  The vitamin B-6 is 5 percent, ideal for promoting the metabolism process.  The vitamin A content that helps to improve eyesight is 13 percent of the daily requirements. The level of iron for oxygen transportation in blood is 1 percent. The bone-and teeth-strengthening minerals, namely magnesium and calcium are 3 percent apiece of the daily value. With virtually no sodium, the tangerine has a healthy portion of potassium at 4 percent of the daily requirements.

We source our Tanzania tangerines from family growers in almost every part of the country where different citrus fruits thrive. All our sources do their cultivation in as little as 0.5 hectares of land. They use organic means inclusive of farmyard compost for soil enrichment. They also abstain from the application of chemical sprays to keep their produce with little residual levels.

We harvest Tanzania tangerines when they are at the height of their bloom. This is usually when the color on the berries turns slightly orange from its early lime green. We use ladders or long bamboo poles with cutlery at the end to reach the topmost fruits. For the rest, we use pruners to cut the pieces that are within reach. Our PPE-clad workers finish the plucking of the fruits at the same time to allow their bulk transportation to the cold house, ready for packing.

We pack Tanzania tangerines in 4/5th bushel cartons that consist of 56 fruits per package. We use horizontal cartons that can carry both the small and large-sized fruits. The smallest tangerines go into the ‘size 210’ cartons: this means 210 fruits per package. We keep the cargo in a cool, dry place when placing labels. We feature such information as the name of the produce, the net weight, and if in bulk, the number of fruits. We also have our company logo as a verification of the country of origin.

We store Tanzania tangerine at zero degrees Celsius. We transport the cargo to the airport in Dar-es-Salaam on the same day of packing via our modified environment interior vehicles. You can expect the cargo to reach your destination in the space of a day or two from the date of shipping.
