I need a serious answer this time; about oranges but not quite.

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

  7. 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.

    You might be thinking of a tangelo.
     
  10. BINGO!

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

    Well, a tangerine IS a type of mandarine orange and they're grown in the US.
     
  15. Sometimes a person needs to change his/her fruit to keep things exciting.
