Clementines grow on an evergreen tree and are a group of hybrids from the Citrus genus. Historically, they were native to China, India and the Philippines. Today, they are grown in other parts of the world as well – anywhere with a warm temperate climate.
Clementines are a pleasantly sweet fruit, low in acid, and are a practical fruit for when you are on the move as they can be peeled without a knife. These are just three of the reasons they are so popular. And for those who enjoy knowing precise details; clementines split into between 8 and 12 segments.
