Kuno Tangor Tangor
'Kuno' has according to some sources Japanese origin, according to Croatian sources it is a cross of Unshiu tangerine 'Nagahashi' and orange 'Shamouti' ('Joppa'). This is also the reason why this variety is sometimes referred to as Unshiu tangerine. Tangor 'Kuno' is a vigorous tree with nice green foliage that ripens slightly arlier than 'Owari'. The fruit is spherical, slightly flattened (resembles tangerines), quite average in size (6-8cm) and weighs 170-230g. It is slightly narrowed close to the peduncle and its orange rind is not very thick and goes right off the fruit. The sweet, soft, juicy pulp contains at most 1 seed. It ripens in December, somewhat later than cutivar 'Seto', which is very similar in many characteristics. Prolonged storage will make the fruit sweeter.
