Clementine 'Afourer'

Citrus reticulata 'Afourer'

Clementines are small to medium-sized evergreen trees that produce round to slightly flat fruits. The fruit has a fragrant glossy orange skin that separates readily from the segmented flesh inside. Afourers are red-orange and often seedless. The trees have beautiful white fragrant flowers that contrast strikingly with the green leaves and the bright fruits.
