I would share them with my niece's grandmother who turned 95 but did not have a party.

My husband and two daughters love to start their day with these tasty delights - and I love knowing they are keeping healthy too! I would share with my neighbor who is unable to get out and get her own supply because of health problems.

I work at a domestic violence shelter, Family Shelter Services, in Illinois. I would love to share a boxed bit of sunshine with the women and one man who work so hard to provide for so many in need.

I would share these satsumas with my mom and dad so that they might know the juicy deliciousness that is satsuma.

I would share satsumas with my 4-year-old daughter's Montessori class. It's a classroom where children are encouraged to become independent and do things themselves, and I love giving satsumas to small children because they get so excited that can peel them ALL BY THEMSELVES! The peels come right off, making them kid-friendly and not too messy. I look forward to seeing those green leaves around the end of November, and this year and think I squeaked out look when I found them within seconds of walking in. Love you, WF!!

I would share the satsumas with my landlord, Chuck! Have never had these, but we're both citrus lovers. They'd be much appreciated!

I would share the satsumas with my husband, in order to remind ourselves to slow down and enjoy our time with each other.

OmG.. My son Adam lives satsumas. He is 13 years old, has celiac disease and watches his diet. He never eats candy or junk food. He eats satsumas. Whenever I get them, I put them in a bowl and he walks by and his eyes light up! The best part of bringing them home is the smile on his face and the Big thank you and hug I get. Wow.. Just the little things ...

I would share these with my brother whom I rarely see and has just developed an interest in finer foods. He graduates from college this year and it would be a great way for him to eat healthy as he makes his way in the world.

My daughter's friend who is a paramedic struggles to feed her children well with a tiny budget. I share some of my bi-weekly CASA share with them and found that there are many fruits that most of us have access to regularly that they had never tasted before. I would love to share a new fruit with them for the holidays.

I would share with my daughter's 1st grade class. Her teacher is asking for healthy snacks for their upcoming holiday party, and I would love to bring these tasty balls of sunshine in for all of her sweet classmates!

I would share them with my 8th grade students. We have spent the last two weeks talking about healthy eating, and the unhealthy cafeteria food they eat daily. I look at their trays when I have cafeteria duty and am appalled at the brown drab colors on their plates. Not a fresh fruit or vegetable in sight! They are currently writing an essay on how to improve the cafeteria food to make it healthier and make it taste better. I polled my students and asked them who has been to Whole Foods and in a couple of classes -- zero hands went up. They hadn't even heard of it. It is only 20 minutes away from our school. Many of my students are economically deprived so this doesn't surprise me. I would LOVE to share these Satsumas with my students! They understand that fresh = yummy and healthy! And, they would so appreciate it!

I would share with my children and grandchildren. As a child my parents would put out oranges, apples, pecans and other nuts throughout the house. The children in the family would get a gift bag filled with these items along with their toys and clothes for Christmas. This would be a new tradition for my grandchildren and especially since I like navel oranges and these are sweet also. Please select me so I can share with my grandchildren and they will pass it on.

I love satsumas and would share them with my Mum. Every time satsuma season comes around she always relays the time when I was little and told her why I thought satsumas were called 'satsumas'- because they were originally going to be called 'umas', but because they were discovered on a saturday, they decided to call them satsumas. I think she quite impressed that someone my age thought of that. It would be great to be able to bring some 'umas' home at Chrsitmas and she can tell everyone the story all over again...

We had to move from our home and into an apartment this year. I never thought we would have faced foreclosure, but we lost 30 % of our income to budget cuts from my husband's employer and couldn't hand on. This year, we won't be picking our satsuma oranges from our trees in the backyard. It has been a tradition on Christmas eve every year. One that we cherished. They are the perfect fruit in my opinion. Hope you pick me :)

I have already started to share. When we had the 1 day sale, I bough a few boxes and passed them on to our local food bank. I kept a few for a trip I was taking and gave the rest to family & friends. I think everyone enjoyed them!
