Marisol is an early Clementine which can be available from late September from Spain or late April from the southern hemisphere. The fruit are juicy and tender to eat, but can be a little acidic. The pale yellow peel is relatively easy to remove, but tends to break easily. The fruit are prone to puffiness if left slightly long on the trees. Production has declined in recent years in Spain as better early varieties, such as Clemenruby, have become available.
