Owari Satsuma Mandarin
Owari Satsuma is the most common of the many Satsuma mandarin selections grown in the United States, although other selections are being introduced. Because of its many fine qualities, Satsuma has been the focus of extensive efforts to extend its season of availability.
Owari Satsuma trees are cold-hardy, productive, and vigorous-growing, but mature to a small size with a spreading and somewhat drooping character. The fruit varies in shape depending upon the conditions where it is grown, but it is most commonly oblate with a smooth and thin orange rind that is easily peeled. The flesh is bright orange, tender and juicy, seedless, and mild in flavor.
The Owari Satsuma is considered to be a mid-season fruit, with its season of harvest being December to January in most areas of California. The fruit itself does not hold well on the tree, but it stores well after harvest.
Cannot ship to California, Florida or Hawaii, ships with soil, repotted into a tall 5 gallon pot.
