This is the main variety of citrus grown in Pakistan. The rind is very smooth, but easy to peel and the segments are tender and juicy with very high levels of sweetness giving a flavour much prized in Pakistan and India. Kinnow has never been popular with British supermarkets due to the presence of seeds, but the taste experience is worth trying. The Clementine thrives in Pakistan’s growing environment due to a high tolerance to hot conditions – maximum temperatures +45oC.
Origin: Kinnow is the product of cross-breeding between the King and Willowleaf mandarins.
