We always called them Tangerines 🍊 when I was growing up. Nowadays supermarkets call them "Easy Peelers".
Apparently according to Professor Google they are seedless Clementines or Satsumas that are easy to peel with your fingers. They are not Tangerines.
I still call them Tangerines. Do you call them that?
So why do we put them in our Christmas stockings? Apparently they were considered exotic especially to people from "Oop North".
So true. We also kept coal in the barf and use our internal doors, architraves and skirting boards for firewood in Winter.
Someone old I once worked with said they had never see a banana until the 1950s.
Nowadays you can get strawberries 🍓 in winter. Everything's flown in or comes in the back of a lorry from a heated greenhouse in 🇳🇱 Holland.
I suppose a Tangerine in your Christmas stocking meant that you were getting something different than a Granny Smiths 🍎 apple or a packet of Custard Creams. What happened to Curly Wurlys, Snake belts, Caramac and Strike Cola?
Do you call Tangerines "Easy Peelers?"
