General Information

Satsumas offer a sweet burst of sunshine in the middle of winter. Our Satsumas ripen completely on the tree which brings out their rich, sweet, citrus flavor. Their loose, easy-peel skin and seedless sections make them a perfectly delicious easy to eat, healthy snack.

Selection and Storage

The skin is smooth to slightly “bumpy.” Satsumas are sometimes sold with the stems and leaves still attached for a more natural appearance. Avoid fruit that feels light for its size and appears to have thin, dry skin – a sign of old, dehydrated fruit. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to several weeks.
