עץ ממשפחת ההדרים. קלמנטינה היא זן של פרי הדר הדומה בצורתו, צבעו וטעמו לתפוז. הקלמנטינה נוצרה מהכלאה שביצע במאה ה-19 הכומר הצרפתי-אלג’יראי, קלמנט רודיה (Clement Rodier). הוא הכליא טנג’רין (זן של מנדרינה) ים תיכוני עם חושחש (עץ הדר שפריו אינו אכיל ושגזעו משמש כ"כנה כלומר בסיס הרכבת עצי הדר אחרים). הפרי שהתקבל נקרא על שמו: קלמנטינה. פריחת העץ בחודשי האביב והפרי מבשיל על העץ בחודשים אוקטובר-נובמבר.

Scientific name: Citrus x aurantium
A tree from the citrus family. Clementine is a variety of citrus fruit that is similar in shape, color and taste to orange. The clementine was created from a hybrid carried out in the 19th century by the French-Algerian priest Clement Rodier. He hybridized a Mediterranean tangerine (a variety of mandarin) with bitter orange (a citrus tree whose fruit is not edible and whose trunk is used as a rootstock, ie the base of the graftage of other citrus trees). The resulting fruit is named after him: clementine. Flowering of the tree in the spring and its fruit ripens on the tree in October-November.
