A Clementine is Everything an Orange Should Be

Last Christmas I discovered clementines. Publix sells huge carts of them for $5.99. They are easy to peel, have no seeds, and are not very sticky. I highly recommend this sweet and tidy fruit! The following is Wikipedia's definition....


A clementine is the hesperidium of a variety of mandarin orange (Citrus reticulata), named in 1902.[citation needed] A clementine is an oblate, medium-sized 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 lack the tangerine's sourness and seeds. Clementines are also known as seedless tangerines, but sometimes contain seeds.

By the way, the Evans side of the family loves clementines.
