Clementines are a very large group of hybrids from Mandarin ( C. reticulata) and presumable Bitter Orange (C. aurantium). These usually thornless varieties are named after padre Clemente Rodier from Algeria who lived at the end of 19th century. Even without pruning, Clementines grow very compact and are densely leafed. Their leaves are slightly broader than those of Mandarine trees, yet they are narrow if compared to oranges or lemons. The flowers are about 1.5.-2.5 cm in diameter, very numerous, white and intensely fragrant. The main bloom is in spring (April/ May) or autumn (October/ November) during a period of 4 to 6 weeks. The fruits truly are a pleasure, especially because they are almost seedless. The orange coloured rind of the fruit is easily peelable. The pulp of fruit is slightly less aromatic than a mandarin but very juicy and very sweet.By the way: The name ‘Tangerine’ with varieties like ‘Dancy’ stands for a subgroup that has been developed as a brand in the USA and still is very wide-spread.
