This might seem like a strange blog, but since I have mentioned that I love eating naartjies, quite a few people have asked me what it is and what it looks here it is. Delicious, citrusy, juicy and easy to peel naartjies. My favourite.

Its coming on that time of the year, when my favourite fruits are going out of season. I am definitly not a summer fruit fan, that's why you won't see me mentioning apples, peaches, pears or grapes in my nutritian/ food trackers.
Thank goodness for banana's, plums and strawberries.

    I love them peeled and canned. I knew I forgot something at the dollar store, a basket for our collective fruit at work!

    Since my diet consists of fruit, vegies, greens all organic all raw, I am with you 100% on this. Nothing healthier than great fruit.

    I'm glad that siobhanknits clarified things (I thought "that looks like a mandarin orange, but it could be related). I love mandarine oranges! I also love clementines, though those aren't in season quite yet (they come into season around Christmas).

Then again, I love a great variety of fruit... strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, peaches (if they are really fresh and the right variety--I am super picky about peaches), pears, grapes (concord grapes are my favorite and are in season right now!), apples (I live in Michigan--we are a bit obsessed with apples here, LOL. Honey Crisps and Galas are among my favorites), plus, grapefruit, blood oranges, clementines, mandarin oranges, cherries.... the list goes on and on! Sadly (or maybe a good thing seeing as how sensitive my husband is to them) I'm not a fan of bananas. I also don't care for mangoes and papaya, which is unfortunate because these are the most common fruit in smoothies and I can't stand them!

    Love them too, although as stated previously known by another name. Yum!

    Aha! I love them! In North America we call them by other names:

From wikipedia:
"Citrus unshiu is a seedless and easy-peeling citrus species, also known as cold hardy mandarin, satsuma mandarin, satsuma orange, Christmas orange, and tangerine. It is probably of Japanese origin and introduced elsewhere."

It's fun to learn what food is called in other places. Naartjies is the Afrikaans name.

Here in the northern hemisphere in California I'm looking forward to citrus coming back into season in the next couple of months. Yum is right!
