Caffin Citrus clementina hort. ex Tan. Klementina
Azem, Caffin SRA 385, Clementine Caffin
'Cafin' is an extremely early variety; it was discovered in 1968 by M. Caffin in Azemour, Morocco. It ripens in the first half of October. 'Cafin' is a slowly growing tree with great soil sensitivity. Fruit resembles that of other Clementines and is quite average (5-6,5 cm), whereas the overall fruit weight is 90-110g. It has well-colored and quite thin rind (with a tendency to puff during hot waves) and almost seedless, excellent tasting pulp (if the fruit ripens in higher temperatures). This variety is self-pollinating.
