Kosrae Tangerine

Kosrae is a volcanic island in the Federated States of Micronesia. It's renowned for local tangerines. They're green when ripe, peel easily, and have incredibly juicy sections with a delicate flavor.

One can buy Kosrae tangerines for export at the airport if they've been inspected to pass quarantine. The only air transport out of Micronesia is to either Hawaii or Guam, and neither allows noncommercial import of citrus. Hence these delicious tangerines are confined to the FSM.
