Can I usually eat oranges or tangerines as dried tangerine peel?
Tangerine peels or citrus peels can be dried for seasoning and cooking, but they cannot replace medicines and have no medicinal effect ; they are still very different from tangerine peels. Moreover, the peels of the Rutaceae plants that are sun-dried by themselves are affected by the process, are not resistant to storage, are prone to mildew and deteriorate, and have a risk of cancer if they are consumed for a long time.
How many kinds of medicinal tangerine peel are there?

On the origin:
As early as the Song Dynasty in my country, tangerine peel had become one of the most circulated “Guangzhou goods” in the north-south trade. The folk saying “one tael of tangerine peel and one tael of gold” is not covered. The core production area of tangerine peel is in Guangdong, and Guangdong has four major production areas. The core is naturally Tianma, Meijiang, Chakeng, and Dongjia in the first production area; it is more intuitive to look at the picture.

The leather that is not more than three years old is not “chen”, so the price of tangerine peel will naturally increase with age. For example, the price of dried tangerine peels over 30 years old starts in the mid-six digits and has reached the price of collections.
The skin of tangerine peel is more expensive than meat, and it is fragrant. The one that is dried at home does not have this taste, nor does it have those medicinal values. The real tangerine peel can be used as a valuable traditional Chinese medicine, spice and seasoning. Of course, due to price constraints, ordinary families will not use it to season.
From the beginning of autumn to the cold dew period, the citrus green peel is picked. At this time, the fruits of the Rutaceae are still oily and green. The dried tangerine peel contains about 2.4-4.5 hesperidin.
When the cold dew to the light snow is picked, it is called slightly red skin. At this time, the fruit is close to maturity, and the skin color changes from green to reddish. The content of hesperidin in the dried tangerine peel is about 2.0 to 3.5.
The fruit picked during the period from Xiaoxue to Xiaohan is called Dahongpi. At this time, the fruit has entered the full-ripening stage. The whole peel is red and the pulp is soft. The hesperidin content of the dried tangerine peel is about 1.5 to 3.0.
