I would have to say that I love the clementines because of my grandmother always bought several cases every Christmas to share with the family. The holiday season is not the same without that wonderful scent of the peels and that juicy flavor. Yummmmmm....

Satsumas - nice big juicy sections with bright flavor but not too acidic. Find them easier to peel than clementines. LOVE them!!!! Will try using the peel as well.

My son loves Clementines because they are handy, easy to peel, and have no seeds. They are plain delicious!

I prefer satsumas over clementines although they're both delicious. I think satsumas are a little sweeter and that's just wghat I'm looking for in the middle of winter. Yum!

It's so hard to choose because I love both and live in New Orleans where there are Satsuma trees all around me! If I have to pick though, it would have to be clementines because they are a little bit sweeter and easy to peel and eat when you're in a rush. I just love the flavor of clementines! :)

Clementines win for me. As a kid, I remember knowing it was Christmas because we got clementines as a special treat. They were expensive and only available for a week or so. They were imported from Spain or Morocco, and I still have not found anything quite so good in citrus.

I LOVE CLEMENTINES!!! They are so cute and sweet and easy to peel. I wanted to name my daughter Clementine (not because I'm weird, just because I think it's cute) but the Mr. said, "No." :(

I love the satsuma especially for fresh juice. I also make pomanders by sticking lots of whole cloves in the skin and tie with a festive ribbon for oranaments and centerpieces,,awesome aroma!!!

I didn't realize top knot Satsumas were different than clementines. I just thought they were a different type of the same thing. I'd go for the clementines. :-)

Have only ever eaten clementines. Never even heard of satsumas, going to whole foods tomorrow to pick some up. I love trying new things I've never eaten
