Clementines are the smallest fruit of the mandarin family. They are devoid of any seeds, and because of their small size, they're the most fragile kind of mandarins. This can make them difficult to find, but if you're lucky enough to get your hands on them, they are in season between November and April. The outside of a clementine is a deep orange and the skin is smooth. Its thin texture makes for an easy peel. Claudia Sidoti, a Head Chef at HelloFresh, tells Eat This that this tiny mandarin packs a ton of sweetness, which makes it a great alternative for traditional, sugary desserts.
