An early Clementine, up to 3 weeks earlier than Clemenules. Matures in mid October in Spain. The fruit has a deep yellow peel which is thin and fairly tough to pierce, though then comes away relatively easily.
Not as flavoursome as Oronules, similar or slightly superior to Marisol. Tends to go puffy when over-mature.
Origin: A bud mutation of Clemenules.
Grown in: Spain, South Africa
