Fambly,I bought some tangerines from Krogers Sypermarket. They were kinda old when I bought them but not totally decrepit and to all appearance they look and feel like tangerines--loose skin and all. But they cannot be swallowed. All I can do is chew the juice out of them. Then I have the flesh in my mouth but it is not of a consistancy conducive to the process of swallowing. But at that point I don't want to chew them anymore because all the taste is gone. So I spit them out like old gum. Now it's been a while since I had a tangerine so is this normal or does it sound fishy to you?
