The tree of the Clementine is very similar to the mandarin tree except for the leaves which are bigger and larger. The fruit has about the same dimension of a mandarin but the shape is rounder. The pulp, more orangy than mandarin, has a balanced sour-sweet taste more similar to oranges. Another clementine’s characteristic is the absence of seeds.
Areas of production and availability:
In regions of high total heat, the Clementine bears fruit early and this also favour maximizing the Clementine size and quality. As a result, the Clementines are tastier!
Our Clementines are in fact cultivated in the southern regions of Italy (Calabria, the most, where we also have a Demeter product) and Spain.
The harvesting is one in a year, between November and January, according to temperatures.
The product is delivered in cardboard boxes of different size, in wooden box or in RPC (Reusable Plastic Containers).
