  • It happens every year:  Just as it starts to get colder and greyer, the first naartjies appear, like neon vitamin-C packets from some higher power that knows we need them. Sour at first, they get sweeter and sweeter throughout the winter, hitting peak flavour during the darkest, worst days of the year. 
Also known as a clementine, satsuma or tangerine, everyone we know calls these fruits a naartjie ("naah-chi"). The Afrikaans word naartjie comes from the Tamil word nartei, meaning citrus. These are one of the all-time great citrus fruits.

A few days ago, we received a WhatsApp from our flower farmer Adene Nieuwoudt.
“Andrew’s naartjies should be ripening this week. I asked him if he would be prepared to sell some to you because I know the people will go crazy for these at the market. You have not tasted naartjies like these in your life. My dad really does not like naartjies and he could not stop eating them the first year we gave him some. All my friends stalk me for naartjies.  You will eat x 10 the first day you taste them.” How could we resist!

Andrew Nieuwoudt and his brother Guy, run Platvlei Farm, a third-generation 120 hectare fruit farm on the other side of Wolseley owned by their parents, Anton and Julie Nieuwoudt. Anton planted naartjies 25 years ago and today they have 8 hectares under cultivation. They also farm pears and plums.

The bothers grow the Nules (Citrus reticulata) variety of naartjies - one of the tastiest and sweetest types you will find. The original clementine, discovered by Father Clement Rodier in the garden of an Algerian orphanage in the late 1890s, was relatively small but high-flavoured.  It tended to be seedy, especially when grown near other citrus with viable pollen. The clementine quickly caught on; as a seedless, incredibly sweet, loose-skinned citrus.

Says Andrew, “It's a busy time of year on the farm, picking the naartjies. We primarily export our fruit to the UK. Our naartjies are easy to peel  with a very pleasing sweet flavour. I hope that you enjoy eating them, as much as we love growing them.”
