PIO, Rose Mary et al. Characteristics of Fremont variety compared to Ponkan and Clementina Nules tangerines. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2006, vol.28, n.2, pp.222-226. ISSN 0100-2945.

Commercial grown tangerines variety are mainly restricted to a few options such as Ponkan tangerine and Murcott tangor. The increasing number of varieties as well as the harvest extending season is important, potentially benefiting consumers and producers of this kind of citrus. Fremont characteristics were compared to Ponkan and Clementina Nules tangerines at Capão Bonito County in São Paulo State from 2002 to 2005. By the results, it was possible to conclude that Fremont trees were semi-dwarfed, the fruits had excellent characteristics for in natura consumption and a harvesting season enlargement of three months, therefore appearing to be a good alternative for orchards, aiming at Ponkan' off-season period.
