Clememtine-Tangerine

Preferred by the little ones, this fruit is eaten fresh thanks to its content of vitamin C and its flavor is similar to orange, even if clementine is much sweeter and easier to peel! They are available from November to April with a very tasty and juicy pulp! The energy value is considerable compared to other citrus fruits and made almost totally by fructose.
