Origin of the clementine nulera

The Nules clementine has its roots in the town of Nules, located in the province of Castellón, Spain. Nules, with its ideal Mediterranean climate, has historically been noted for its citrus fruit production. In the mid-20th century, local growers began to cultivate a variety of clementine, the result of a spontaneous mutation, which quickly stood out for its superior quality. This variety, later known as clemenules, became a symbol of the area and a benchmark of quality in the citrus fruit market.

The nulera clementine is appreciated for its balanced taste between acidity and sweetness, and its fresh, citrusy aroma. Its thin skin peels easily, making it ideal for direct consumption. It is also virtually seedless, which enhances the eating experience. Its attractive deep orange colour and medium size make it perfect to enjoy at any time. The clemenules season runs from November to January, allowing its freshness to be enjoyed throughout the winter.
