Florida tangerines, not 'domestic clementines'

The "domestic clementines" I referred to in the last post, "Tasting and shopping notes," actually are tangerines from Florida (I just looked at the box). They look like clementines, but I guess all the pits I found should have been the giveaway.

The biggest words on the box are "FLORIDA CITRUS." If you examine the smaller type of the grower's Web address, you'll see the word "tangerines." And this morning, my wife and a house guest said the tangerines they just ate were sweet, not sour, so there are both kinds in the box.
