What are Satsumas
Satsumas are a variety of mandarin orange. They are sweet, have very few seeds and are easy to peel.
Satsumas are harvested once a year. Our season is usually between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Satsumas can be eaten in a variety of ways such as: freshly picked and peeled, fresh squeezed juice, syrup, jams and jelly, wine and vinegar. Their peel can also be used to add flavor to food or beverages.
Store your fresh fruit in a cool, dry place.
Juice can be frozen to keep longer!
Please wash your Satsumas with a bleach water solution prior to consuming.
