Jeju Hallabong Tangerines
Hallabong is a famous breed of tangerines native to Jeju Island that has a richer taste and scent than normal tangerines. Identifiable by their protruding sterns, not only are they are filled with crunchy pulp that are full of juice, they are rich in Vitamin C and promote metabolism.
Hallabong tangerines are a cross breed between the Kiyomi orange and Ponkan. Its name 'Hallabong' derives from its resemblance to the iconic Hallasan Mountain in Jeju Island.

Ways to Enjoy Your Hallabong
Besides enjoying them fresh from the peel, Hallabong tangerines are also great for making tea and marmalade.
Keep the tangerines refrigerated at all times when not consuming as the high moisture content in the tangerines may cause them to turn mouldy in Singapore's humid weather. Check here for more tips on how to store your tangerines.
Some of the tangerines may taste a little sour as they have been freshly picked from the farm. Try leaving them out for a few days for them to ripen.
The white residue on the skin of tangerine are a calcium compound that helps to maintain the health of the tangerine trees and are harmless to the human body. Simply peel the skin off or wash the tangerines before consuming.
