Satsuma oranges, also known as mikan, is a Japanese variety of mandarin orange that is seasonally available in winter. These citrus fruits have a strong citrus fragrance with a pleasantly balanced flavor. They are juicy and sweet with some tartness. Satsuma oranges have little to no seeds and soft, loose skin that can be easily peeled.
These satsuma oranges are hand-harvested to preserve the integrity of the thin skin. The stems and leaves are left intact as a indicator of freshness and proof of non-mechanical harvesting.
