The supermarkets a full of orange citrus fruit these days. But are they mandarins, clementines or something else?
A Clementine is a mandarin, but a mandarin is not a clementine.
In general the peel on the clementine is thin and clementines are barely without any seeds.
On the other hand mandarins have a thicker peel and often many seeds.
In fact a clementine is just a sort of mandarin, so I guess the easy way is just to call them all mandarins.
One thing is sure – they both contain a high amount of vitamin C.
If any of you out there are citrus fruit experts – please enlighten me!
