From Italy with Love…and a lot of organic fruit! 🥑 🇮🇹
Orteat starts shipping organic products from its Italian farmers to some European countries.
Sorry if you find some Italian words or some mistakes, we are working on improving our International website.
In the meantime, we don't want you to lose the chance to try out our farmers' products!
Sweet and tasty, our Clementines are the ideal snack for the whole family, and they can also be enjoyed at school or while at the office. This variety of citrus fruit ripens between October and November and has a thin orange, thin and smooth skin, while its shape is rounded.
It was probably discovered in the early 90s by Father Clément Rodier in Algeria and the Clementine Tangerine is a natural hybrid that realistically comes from a crossing between either the Havana Tangerine and the Sweet Orange or between the former one and the Bitter Orange.
The production of seedless Clementines is particularly widespread in the regions of Calabria, Basilicata and Puglia, thanks to their optimal climate and soil conditions. This fruit tree is small, sometimes with thorny branches and bright green leaves. Like all of our other products, Clementines are grown in open fields following organic farming practices that don’t use any chemical fertilizers. Since they are not subjected to post-treatment operations, the fruit retains its authenticity even in its skin, which can be used in the kitchen to make liqueurs or creams.
Properties and Nutritional values
Seedless Clementines have both high vitamin C content (49 mg/100 g) and vitamin A (12 mg/100 g) content, as well as low calorie content (47 kcal/100 g) due to the high water content that makes them extremely juicy. The fruit is considered to be a natural sweetness that is also healthy.
Organic seedless Clementines contain a high percentage of bioflavonoids, which, along with vitamin C, are important for rebuilding the connective tissue collagen and for strengthening the blood vessel walls.
Vitamins C and A make it a perfect fruit for counteracting aging, fighting free radicals and protecting eyesight.
Their bromine content has a calming effect on the nervous system.
Clementines, because of their high water content, have thirst-quenching and refreshing properties and are useful against insomnia thanks to their vaso-protective action on blood circulation.
Storage and use
Our organic seedless Clementines are excellent to be eaten in many ways: sliced, in a freshly squeezed juice, but also added in custards or liqueurs.
Moreover, this fruit goes perfect with pumpkin and nutmeg for a flan, or in Belgian salad with endive and walnuts. Together with tasty jams, a delicious dessert are Clementines filled with flavorful custard.
These fruit are grown in open fields and are not treated at any step of the production chain. Due to their freshness, they can last for many weeks after they have been harvested, if stored in a dry and cool environment such as a terrace or a balcony.
