Citrus clementina.jpg
  • A clementine (Citrus × clementina) is a hybrid between a mandarin orange and a sweet orange, so named in 1902.
  • The exterior is a deep orange colour with a smooth, glossy appearance. Clementines can be separated into 7 to 14 segments. Similar to tangerines, they tend to be easy to peel. The clementine is also occasionally referred to as the Moroccan clementine.They are typically juicy and sweet, with less acid than oranges
  • In Citrus clementina, where anther culture was successfully established, previous investigations on the ploidy of 94 plants obtained through anther culture, carried out by flow cytometry analysis, showed that about 82 % of them were tri-haploids, rather than haploids or doubled-haploids, as expected, but embryos with other ploidy levels, such as n, 2n, 4n and 6n, were also obtained (Germanà et al. 2005)[1][2].
