    What is the English name for that piece of fruit that looks like an orange, but is smaller and has a peelable skin?

    Tangerine is a possibility, but it is certainly not a nectarine.

    It's a mandarin. Exactly like an orange but smaller and you can peel the skin.

    tangerines are something different.

    BINGO!

    I assumed it would be a different name, but now I am 100% positive it is a mandarin.

    Sometimes a person needs to change his/her fruit to keep things exciting.
