I tried a green clementine recently, as I remember they are popular in Egypt at green stage. Full sized, just braking colour.
A bit sharp, refreshing. Bit like mild Rangpur Lime.

Many mandarins are ready to eat before they turn orange.

In warmer areas a lot of citrus stay green when fully ripe

I see you are in Hawaii.
I have heard of this, also regreening of Citrus fruit.
Always thought it was mainly peel colour.
Does the fruit flavour also revert to less ripe ?

Citrus greening is a disease and not the same. To my understanding, they have to get cold enough to turn from green, but they are still fully ripe.

Yes greening is a seperate disease.
Regreening is a process that happens when Oranges are held too long on the tree.
As you say Citrus in the tropics also often don't get to the bright orange peel stage.

Lane Late ( Navel Orange ) fruit are not as round as Washington navel and may exhibit a more oblong fruit shape in some seasons. Lane Late fruit have a smaller, more concealed navel than Washington navel. Early season rind colour is less intense than Washington navel and skin regreening of late held fruit may also be a problem. Rind is thinner and has a smoother texture than Washington navel.
