The German names for those fruits in fact correspond exactly to the same
names in English: mandarin <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandarin_orange>
- Mandarine <https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandarine> (C. reticulata),
tangerine <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangerine> - Tangerine
<https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citrus_tangerina> (C. tangerina or Citrus
reticula L. var.), clementine <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clementine> -
Clementine <https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clementine_(Frucht)>
(C. clementina or Citrus × aurantium).

(Whether or not Qov was really eating a tangerine, or a clementine which
Okrand mistook for a tangerine, is another issue.)
