Military Produce Group Clementine


General Information:

Traditionally a Christmas favorite, Clementines are at their peak in November and December. Clementines are a cross between a Mandarin orange and a Seville orange, which makes them much smaller and sweeter than other tangerine varieties.

Selection and Storage:

Fresh clementines will be bright, shiny and a vibrant orange.  Ripe clemetines can be refrigerated to extend the life of the fruit.

Preparation and Cooking:

Clemetines are easy to peel and have small segments so they are great for kids and for lunches. Use clementine segments for a citrus twist on a salad.
