Satsuma (Eng.), Naartjie (Afr.), Sagte sitrus (Afr.)
Satsumas are known for being juicy and plump, with a mild tang to balance the sweetness. The pale orange-coloured rind is very easy to peel and the internal flesh is a deep orange colour. The fruits are ready to pick towards the end of March in South Africa. The satsuma mandarin tree is the most cold-tolerant citrus of commercial importance, only the kumquat is more cold hardy.
