I like the zingy taste of satsumas, whole or juiced, and I love to eat the candied peel!

Satsumas are fabulous! I appreciate their "adult" taste now that I have grown up and have had the good luck to discover them.

We await whole foods satsuma a every year.. They are harder to find but the most satisfying citrus there is! Sweet, juicy, easy to peel.. Our whole family lives them and they most closely resemble the 'satsuma' I found at the bottom of my stocking each year at my family Christmas in England!

Satsuma? I have never heard of one, but would love to try one. I love clementines and my grandchildren can eat a whole bag in 3 days.

Clementines are ok but satsumas rule! Having said that I must add that the satsumas you get from either Florida or Califonia are bitter by my standards. Having been raised in Louisiana I must say you cannot beat Louisiana satsumas. Unfortunately the commercial crop from Louisiana was decimated in 1985 when there was a week of 10-15 degree weather. This cold killed most of the trees except those in protected areas of peoples yards. If you know someone from south Louisiana that has a tree have them send you some and you will taste the sweetest orange you have ever eaten.

I have tried both and love them equally. Since the flavor of the Satsumas is a little more tangy I have used a combination of both in recipes.

My daughter and I love to eat both the clementines and the satsumas. But I have to say Satsumas are my favorite. My favorite way to enjoy them is as fresh juice.

Satsumas are great because of the intense flavor and I think they are juicier.

i have long been a fan of clementines, and love using them in my preschool classroom. The children can peel, section and eat them independently, which is a huge bonus. Lately, however, I am falling in love with the satsumas. I have a piece of citrus with my lunch almost every day, and the children (who are supposedly napping....) love to comment on the smell of my fruit, and were noticing the satsumas tell-tale bump. I brought in a case to share with them and they were impressed that they were like clementines. and they could still peel them independently, but more sour and more flavorful, and, of course, had the infamous bump. Hence my new favorites!

I can eat Clementines like potato chips. I just can't eat one. I have to have three! I live rurally and finding Clementines is an absolute treat!

I like both equally but will buy the Satsumas while they are around and then switch to the Clementines for the duration of the season. To be totally honest, my favorite citrus is a juicy ruby red grapefruit!

I have always loved Satsuma mandarins for their intense aroma and flavor. The oils in the peel are so fresh and bright, smelling them is almost as good as eating them...almost.

Clementines! I was such a fastidious child that I couldn't bear the mess of peeling an orange and getting the juice and citrus oil on my hands. Easy-to-peel seedless clementines changed my life!

I vote for SATSUMAS! Beautifully orange, sweet, easily peeled, and delicious! I especially like them because they are a Louisiana specialty, whether from Plaquemines Parish or our own backyard--none better!!!

Satsumas win hands down... Better flavor & easier to peel... Only drawback is duration of season. But we are here now; bring them on!!
