CLEMENTINE

The Clementine is a hybrid of tangerine and the Seville or bitter orange developed in 1902 near Oran, Algeria by Father Clement Rodier, a French missionary. They are easy to peel, have only occasional seeds, and have a very pleasant tangy, sweet flavor. They have been called 'zipper oranges' and kid-glove oranges because they are so easy to peel (a lady could peel one wearing kid gloves).

The Mandarin orange includes several varieties of citrus fruit, including the Mandarin (China), Tangerine (named for Tangier, Morocco, where they were first imported from China), Dancy, Clementine and Satsuma (Japan).  They vary in size, sweetness, and whether they have seeds or not, but they all have loose skins that slip off easily. They were introduced into the U.S. in 1882.  Most canned mandarin oranges are made from Satsumas.
