Satsuma Mandarin Oranges
The first mandarin of the season, the Satsuma peels and segments easily. The exterior will display a light orange color and perhaps a tinge of green, but the interior will be a bright orange. The Satsuma is pebbly in texture. Its fruit is sweet and usually seedless. One of the distinguishing features of the Satsuma is the thin, leathery skin, which is lightly attached around the fruit, enabling it to be peeled very easily in comparison to other citrus fruits.
