City Fruit

Tangerine: The Fuzhou basin teems with tangerines, with oranges making up their majority. The tangerine features a thin peel and a red, juicy pulp, and therefore got its Chinese name as the “fortune orange.” Ripe at the end of the year, blessed with its red color and pronounced in Chinese similarly to the word “fortune,” it is regarded as a mascot and proper greeting gift by local people.
