Nova

Nova

Description

A sibling of the Lee, Osceola, and Robinson mandarins, is a hybrid of clementine Fina and tangelo Orlando. In 1971 'Nova' was intoduced to Europe where it is called Clemenvilla. The tree grows vigorously and can be thorny. The medium-sized fruit is usually subglobose and has a slightly pebbled thin reddish-orange rind that is easily peeled. The flesh is dark orange, fine-textured, and juicy with a sweet, rich flavour. In mixed plantings, Nova fruits are moderately seedy, but in isolation the fruits are seedless but less plentiful. Nova matures in early winter and holds well on the tree. Nova (Clemenvilla) is a premium marmalade variety with a rich sweet flavour. Make sure you include the peel as well.
