OUR FRUITS | CLEMENTINE

ORIGIN & PRODUCTION

Clementines, also classified as a citrus fruit, are similar to tangerines and tend to be less acidic than oranges. This fruit is a cross between the mandarin orange and the sweet orange. 

France is the fourth largest producer of clementines in Europe, after Spain, Italy and Greece. Israel is our main supplier of clementines, and the demand remains high. 

DESCRIPTION & APPEARANCE

Clementines and mandarins (or tangerines) are very similar-looking citrus fruits, and often confused. Yet their origin is different, and these are separate species with different flavours. Clementines tend to be more popular. They are easier to peel and have no seeds, or very few seeds, unlike the mandarin.

Their skins are green and then turn orange due to the effect of the drop in temperatures in winter. The significant difference between day and night-time temperatures has a positive impact on the colour and taste of clementines. Their juicy, fragrant flesh offers a good balance between sweetness and acidity.

NUTRITIONAL CHARACTERISTICS
& PREPARATION

Clementines have a relatively mild flavour, but this does not mean they are low in vitamins. This fruit is a great vitality booster during the winter season, offering high vitamin C but low calories. 

Clementines are usually eaten as they are, but can also be incorporated into sweet and savoury dishes.

VARIETIES & AVAILABILITY
AT TOTAL PRODUCE INDIGO

TOTAL PRODUCE INDIGO imports ORRI clementines, also known as “OR” clementines.

Slightly sweeter, this variety nevertheless has an excellent balance between sweetness and acidity. Another good reason to choose clementines!
