Subject: Re: plugs and fruit

My wife, who grew up in N. Florida, and stayed in the South (at UNC and

Mercer) until the age of 27, just now said she like to peel tangerines and

eat the "plugs." She isn't sure she remembers right, but thinks that is

what she alwyas called the sections of the tangerines. Anybody else

encountered this? Is it regional or idiolectal?
