Bright and refreshing.

It was not until a few weeks ago that I first tasted a clementine – little did I know beforehand how delicious it would be! They are a variation of the mandarin orange and similar to a tangerine.

Nothing quite like a clementine.

But out of all the citrus fruits, clementines are now my favorite.

Vintage: Darling Clementines

Interesting facts: And as a girl’s name, Clementine (Latin) means merciful, mild, gentle. Clementine was the name my great-great-great grandmother went by (it was her middle name), as well as the name of Winston Churchill’s wife.

    Clemetines are my favorite citrus fruit as well! They are delightful and oh, so scrumptious! If I can remember right, I tasted my first clementine in China, when we went to pick my sweet little sister up! She enjoys them greatly, and if we have them at our house (as we do now), you can be sure to see her eating one!

    Many Blessings,

    We love clementines! They are about the only oranges we ever eat now. :) My Mother just bought some the other day, and I think I have almost devoured them all!

    I L.O.V.E clementines! The box that your clementines came in is just perfect. :)

    We first heard about clementines a few years ago when we lived in VT. They are very good, although it has been a while since I have had one. :)

    Thanks for sharing those interesting facts about the name Clementine!

    Clementines are so good! The crates they come in are really very cute. I have one in my room holding knitting things, and another (the same blue “Darling Clementines” type that you have) holding books that are too tall for my shelf.

  20. Sara on Feb 1, 2011 said:

    Our family loves Clementines too! It’s our special Thanksgiving treat and there is always a box in the house until New Years. :) As omni-present as the citrus fruits are, I still like the name. Very sweet!

  21. Miss. Antoinette on Feb 1, 2011 said:

    Wow, really your first time eating one eh!? Cool! I just love them myself and enjoy them so very much!

    Love the clementines. Where are the Darling Clementines from?
    The ones I’ve been getting here in Georgia are Bagu, S.A. from Spain, also Del Monte ones from Chile. I’ve tried some that I believe were from California, but didn’t like those as much. Just interested in where the ones you get are grown. I really enjoy your blog.

    Mary, the Darling Clementines are from Spain, as well. And thank you! Blessings, Emily Rose

    Wow, you’ve never had a clementine until a few weeks ago? Good thing you tried them though. Were they seedless? We’ve bought seedless ones before only to find that every single piece has a seed in it. They’re a good winter fruit. Keep warm in this FREEZING weather! Bethany

    Catching up on the blogs today. :)
    I can’t tell you how much I enjoy the photos you take! :)
    The second picture is eye-popping orange and I LOVE it!
    I just saw the post with Breezy’s pictures, I wish I lived closer, I’d have you take mine. That would be SO much fun.
    Love you and miss you all.
    Hugs all around,
    Marie :)

    May Dad wanted to name me Clementine : )

  27. Rachel Crosswhite on Feb 5, 2011 said:

    My brothers love them so much that they eat most of before I get one of them! They eat most of them in one sitting! But they learned their lesson…eating to many Clementines gives you a tummy ache! :) Off to eat one now :D
