'Afourer' is a tangor of unknown parentage, which was imported to California from Morocco in 1985. The tree is moderate in size and vigor. The fruit is usually flattened with a thin, smooth, orange rind that is easy to peel. The fruit is low-seeded in the absence of cross-pollination, but seedy when cross-pollinated. The flesh is orange-colored and juicy, with a rich and sweet flavor. As with most mandarins, W. Murcott is susceptible to alternate-bearing. The fruit matures in February and holds on the tree very well.Β Β
