I would share them with my dad. Every Christmas growing up my grandparents would send a box of citrus up from Florida. This would bring back memories.

I used to pick Satsuma Oranges (Mikan) with the preschool kids I taught while living in Sasebo, Japan when my husband and I were stationed there through the navy. It was a winter tradition for families to eat Mikan in the winter to stay healthy during the cold season. It was always so much fun seeing the smiles on all the kids faces as they reaped their rewards of tending to the trees. I would share my Satsuma Oranges with my Japanese friend dear friend Emi who also misses Japan so much.

I would share them with my mom and dad and brother and sisters, whom I haven't been able to see in 6 years now. In Oct my dad was seriously hurt while at work and then towards the end of Oct. my mom had a stoke so yea this would be really special if I could five them a gift such as this, and then to be able to share with my family, it would make my wish and theirs that much sweeter! Thanks so much!!

Oranges = Love! I'll share a box with my boyfriend who lives 1000 mi away from me. We can eat them together via Skype and pretend we're together :))))

I'd give them to my mom, she's had a rough year, and this would be a small way to bring some cheer.

I would take the box to my office. I have several colleagues who, like me, are working to lose weight in the face of some serious health issues, and this would be a lovely (and healthy) snack to share with them at the time of year when there are so many temptations (like the cookies someone just dropped off).

I would enjoy sharing Satsumas as house warming gifts during the Christmas season as well as share them with my guests during the holidays.

I would share oranges with my sister and new born nephew! Because oranges are a symbol of goodluck and prosperity in Chinese culture.

I'd share satsumas with my friend Joel. He has literally talked to me about satsumas and their superiority among fruits at length (taste, ease of peeling, lack of seeds...oh my goodness). Because he's a lawyer I was skeptical, but could not disagree when I had some of my own from WF. Truth is Joel has a serious digestive disease called colitis and this summer has had multiple surgeries (last one was just this Thursday). Most of his adult life has been a battle to find what foods he can actually eat. Through the sugar free, dairy free, gluten free, egg free, etc diet trials he has still been able to eat satsumas. I would give him my box, too. (Well, I'd keep 2-3!).

I would send them to my Grandma in Arizona. She is a shut in and is not able to get to the store to shop. She loves oranges!

I would share with a long time, good friend who has been having a hard time making ends meet lately, and could use some extra cheer right now.

I would love to share a box of Satsuma's with my friend, Dave. I always look forward to this time of year because it is Satsuma season. I just picked up a dozen yesterday at my local Whole Foods and was shocked to discover that my friend had never heard of, let alone tried, a Satsuma before. After eating just one, he agreed that they are nature's candy. It would be terrific to satisfy his new craving for Satsuma's this holdiay season.

Do I have to share them? ;) Only kidding... I would share them with my dad, who absolutely loves them and eats them in one bite. 13 pounds is a lot of citrus, so I'd also share them with my mom and two siblings.

I would share them with my grandparents because they enjoy great tasting fruit and always give to me so why not give back to them.

I would share them with my boyfriend's parents to make a good impression (even though they already love me!). Better to send some beautiful, nutritious fruit instead of chocolate since I am a dietitian!

I would share them with my grandchildren. They're fesh, healthy and sweet providing a great treat, especially during a holiday season filled with cookies and candy.

I would share these with my two beautiful married daughters. Times are tough, they are frugal like their parents and deserve something as sweet as they are! Plus, who doesn't like these lovely orbs of sweet deliciousness!

I would share them with my best friend Meg with a glass of white wine, a soft, runny cheese like Brillant Savrin and maybe a drizzle of honey. Meg and I have been there for each other through some very hard times and plenty of good ones as well. She has been so generous to my family and I over the past few years thru some very tough financial times. I would love to be able to return the favor and give her something in return this time.

I would share them with my roommates because they just introduced me to this wonderful fruit and I would like to pay them back :)
