I eat satsumas like candy. This is my favorite time of year not because of the holiday cheer, but because of the short window where the satsuma's tangy sweetness can make a dark winter day so bright!

Clementines are darling, but Satsumas sound simply scrumptous!

Clementines! You said it first, they are best eaten out of hand, sweet and not too acidic. Perfect for home lunch but also versatile in the kitchen.

I love them both, the shape of a Satsuma is always adorable, but I'd have to pick clementines as they're more consistently delicious.

I enjoy both, but have a predilection for a tart or even sour underbite to fruit so I tend to prefer , if I have to choose , satsumas , 'though they have been a much more recent discovery . And I , too , love the visual appeal of the leaves in tow. As a child I always got a " Christmas orange " or two in my " stocking " , but that was in the U.K. & they were ubiquitously referred to as mandarins.

In a rush and no time to eat? No worries, grab one or two clementines on your way out the door.

HOORAY FOR CITRUS. I start each day with 1/2 juiced lemon in water, then I always eat a some kind of an orange or other citrus fruit. I love the Satsumas, and almost anything that resembles an orange. Grated orange peel dried in my EXCALIBUR FOOD DEHYDRATOR is a very welcome Christmas gift for my friends. I buy fancy small bottles for these gifts and attach a small booklet of recipes that I have made. THANKS for the extra ideas.

I'm sweet on Satsumas because I can't stand sour fruits.

Clementines bring back wonderful memories of celebrations in Toronto and Paris. As Westcoast children, my husband and I always had oranges from Japan as a special treat in the toe of our Christmas stockings and I looked for them when we were transferred to Toronto and spent our first Christmas with our young children far from friends and family. Our local produce man finally convinced me to try the clementines which were of course delicious. I learned a valuable lesson about being open to change and have since enjoyed the suggestions of food purveyors all over the world.

Clementines because their peels are easy to rip.

Every Christmas when my daughter visits from England she asks for Satsumas, but I have rarely been able to find them and she has to settle for Clementines. She adores Satsumas so I am delighted to hear that you have them this year and I can surprise my daughter!

Although both are delicious, my favorite would have to be the clementine! I love the easy peel and sweetness! They are the perfect snack to eat out of hand, and I am always closer to my "eat five a day" when it's clementine season.

I love the clementines. I have never taste the satsumas. I am trying to incorporate more fruits in my family diet and clementines seem to be easy for our family. Because of their size and taste, my two daughters and husband can enjoy them in their lunch and I can balance my diet(trying to lose weight,lol).

Clementines are my favorite. They are small and easy to eat on the run.

Satsumas are my new go-to ingredient to add a kick of flavor to my holiday recipes. The zest adds just the right amount of flavor to desserts like pistachio cake, and the fruit adds interest to an otherwise boring salad. Love these!
