The holiday fruit that’s loved by kids and adults alike

Clementines are a hybrid between oranges and mandarin oranges. Some people confuse clementines with tangerines, but they’re actually a completely different variety of fruit. While there is some debate about where clementines originated, most are now grown in Morocco and Spain, where it is hot and dry.

Clementines are naturally rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C – and relatively low in calories, which makes them a great snack. Because they’re easy to peel and almost always seedless, kids love them, too. They’re in season from late October through February.

Look for them in our produce department.
