Fun Fact

The clementine is named after Brother Marie-Clément, who ran an orphanage in Misserghin, Algeria during the late 19th century and grew the very first clementines in their garden.

Plant Description

Clementines are quite unique among the plants of the Citrus genus. Specifically, Citrus clementina don’t have as high of a heat requirement to thrive. This means that they can be grown in areas with more moderate temperatures. The regions with higher average temperatures, such as North Africa, the Mediterranean, and California do produce the most prized clementines (in both size and quality), but the greatest producer overall is China. Along with the unique harvesting factors of the tree, the volatile aromatic compounds of the peels create a distinct orange-like odor with subtle notes of lemon.
