VARIETIES CLEMENTINE

SATSUMA

A clementine is an oblate, small citrus fruit. The exterior is a deep orange colour with a smooth, glossy appearance. Clementines separate easily into eight to fourteen juicy segments. They are very easy to peel, like a tangerine, but are almost always seedless. Clementines are, thus, also known as seedless tangerines.

Also known as mikan, the Satsuma fruit is sweet and usually seedless, about the size of other mandarin oranges but smaller than an orange. One of the distinguishing features of the Satsuma is the distinctive thin, leathery skin dotted with large and prominent oil glands, which is lightly attached around the fruit, enabling it to be peeled very easily in comparison to other citrus fruits. The Satsuma also has particularly delicate flesh, which cannot withstand the effects of careless handling.

MINNEOLA

In addition to these varieties, there are:

• •

Murcott Afourer Pixie

The Minneola tangelo is likewise a cross between a Duncan grapefruit and a Fancy tangerine.. Most Minneola tangelos are characterized by a stem-end neck which tends to make the fruit appear bell-shaped. The peel is relatively thin so the fruit peels easily. It is quite juicy. It has few seeds and numbers can range from zero up to perhaps as many as twelve seeds per fruit.
