Once a rarity and a real treat to have at Christmas, clementines have now become a bit of a staple over the Christmas period. The story behind them finding their way into the toes of our stockings starts with St Nicolas, who traditionally handed out gold coins at Christmas to well behaved children. As time went on, clementines began to represent these gold coins, bringing luck and prosperity for the year to come.
