Today’s the day to get your Satsuma Mandarins for just 69 cents per pound (available in our stores in the U.S. and Canada.) These great tasting little citrus gems are at peak of season during the holidays. Super sweet, juicy, seedless and easy to peel, the Satsuma is a variety of Mandarin orange and a cousin to the Clementine. Grown in the San Joaquin Valley, the Satsuma’s annual harvest begins in November and the season is, well, short and sweet, just lasting six to eight weeks.
In addition to enjoying as a peel-and-eat snack, try some of these recipes to take advantage of Satsuma season and our one-day sale. They just might find their way to your holiday table!
