Mioro is an early to mid-season clementine of fine quality. The segments have high juice content and a melting texture, with high levels of sweetness and a good acid balance. The mildly pebbled peel is easy to remove and leaves no residue. Fruit size is on the small side, which explains why the variety is less common: growers tend avoid types with too many small fruit as they are harder to sell. However, due to the good eating quality of the fruit, growers can acheive slightly higher prices with Mioro. The fruit is seedless as long as growers avoid pollination during flowering.
