Thai Green Tangerines

The tangerines that I had seen and bought, and enjoyed, before, all have had orange skins, though I have seen and tasted oranges with green skins. When I came across these green tangerines from Thailand in the local Chinese supermarket, I had to try and see if they tasted different, for one, and whether they lived up to their label of being sweet, for another. My beautiful Thai friend told me, when I asked her about them, that the tangerines with green skin in Thailand were not sweet, and to try them myself, and I would see. Well, I found them to be about as sweet as other tangerines that I have tasted before, there was nothing really special about them that I could see, other than being unusual.
