Spinoso Citrus clementina hort. ex Tan. Klementina
'Spinoso' is very early variety and probably a natural mutation of cultivar 'Commune' discovered in Calabria. This tree is quite high and grows mostly vertically. It has dense crown with small thorns on the branches. Its fruit is oval or spherical, small and weighs slightly less than other tangerines (80 g). It ripens 15-20 days before other Clementines, but the fruit can't hang long ripe on the tree.
