Default Citrus help needed.

I purchased a dwarf citrus reticulata Citura tangerine years ago. It flowered for the first time this spring and has fruit. I read some literature that said some tangerines are ripe when green others when orange, so I picked a tiny fruit that was half orange half green to test. It was juicy, full of flavor, and pucker-your-lips tart. My question is when do the sugars develop? What type of citrus is this, because I dont find any reputable information about a Citura variety? F.Y.I. the plant is in North Carolina. Our temps in October run about 49F to 79F.

here in Florida usually the first freeze we have makes the fruit sweet or from the look of the skin when it gets the color yours is now wait about 4-5 weeks and they should be perfect if not wait 2-3 more weeks and test another until they reach your desired taste. Tangerines require a lot of heat to produce a real quality fruit.so I hope yours is not in a shaded spot..

Thanks for the info! The plant has been in full sun since May. I'll leave it in full sun until the temps dip to frost and freeze. Sounds like I'll have tangerines for Thanksgiving.
