Satsuma Time

Unlike Tangerines, whose very name implies tanginesst/tartness, Louisiana Satsumas are totally and unbelievably sweet.  Also the slices are loose from the peel making them a joy to peel and eat.
 

 
They are in season now.   food6

Never heard of them before. I thought you were talking about the Japanese pottery that my wife collects. :)

Satsuma Orange  Notice the last sentence in the first paragraph;  "In the United States, it is grown mostly in the southernmost parishes of Louisiana."

First I have heard of satsumas although my wife says she has tried them. According to her they are much like a Mandarin.

Those sound delicous! Never seen them before, do you find them at a grocery or have you got a connection?

You will mostly find them at fruit stands/vegetable markets and from folks that make the trip and haul back a load and sell them roadside.  (that is where mine came from)   :)

I have eaten the above mentioned similarities and they are just that, similarities.  Not Satsumas.   :)

I would disagree about the sweetness and juiciness.  Ripe Satsumas are the sweetest and juiciest of all. 

Now, if it is not ripe, then there is some tart, and if it is old, then not as juicy.

Lots of folks have satsuma trees around here.  We just pick them right off the tree.  Back before they developed all of these new varieties of trees, satsuma was the only citrus that could be grown this far north.  Now we can grow oranges, lemons and grapefruit, so the satsuma has about faded into obscurity.  It has begun to make a little comeback lately, with a few small commercial groves here in N. Florida.  :)

As a former citrus tree farmer [ I had 14 trees ;D) it depends on who, where and how they are grown how sweet they get. Before the citrus greening destroyed our trees there were plenty around here. We called them Christmas oranges. They are a type of manderin with chineses origns.

Satsuma time is here.  The local fruit stands/markets as well as the "roadside sellers" have bags of Satsumas and they are exceptionally sweet this year.  A most enjoyable seasonal treat!!  

Thank You South Louisiana.  food6
