A partially peeled Clementine orange over a textured teal background.

And as I was shooting this, I was wondering exactly where this orange got it’s name.



“It came to exist because of accidental hybridization.  The first fruits were discovered by Brother Clément Rodier (after whom the fruit was named) in the garden of his orphanage in Algeria.  However, there are claims it originated in China much earlier.”
