Satsuma (Citrus unshiu) originates from Japan and misleadingly is often assigned to the group of Tangerines and Clementines. Although having much in common with these, there are some subtle distinctions: its leaves are distinctly broader than the Tangerine’s, its crown is still very compact, however, a little more unformal than Tangerine and also thornless. The weight of fruits often bends the branches at their ends. The flowers are small (1-1.5 cm), very numerous and have a typical sweet - dry fragrance . The fruits grow larger than Tangerines, especially because even after ripening they continue growing. With their intense to dark orange peel the fruits stick to the tree for a very long time, even when in late autumn ( October/ November) they have reached full ripeness already. The fruit segments are hardly connected with the peel so that Satsumas can easily be peeled. Satsumas tolerate cold and even short-time frost, however they can -in our opinion- not be wintered outside in our country.
