Geee, this is a great distinction!! Love them both but never really knew with certainty which I was eating. I'd have to say that the flatter sweeter clementine is my favorite!! (Although I'd never turn a satsuma down, either).

I'm from England and was brought up on Spanish Satsumas. I am so excited to find them in the USA. They are so easy to peel and wonderfully flavo(u)rful. My family loves them, too. Satsumas rule!

Definitely Clementines are the winner! The taste, ease of peeling, storehouse of vitamins in a compact package, practically seedless (my old teeth appreciate that), a bowl makes the whole house smell good, and on and on. Can not say enough good things about these perfect sized wonders. The only bad thing I can say is they aren't always available ;)

Until this year, I was all clementine. Suddenly I have a newfound love for satsumas!

Satsumas are the best. Easier to pull and larger than the Clementines.

The satsumas I got at Whole Foods last week were delicious. Best fruit I've had since my parent's owned their own fruit stand in Florida. My kids begged me to buy more. They were so flavorful and juicy, so they beat out the clementines, hands down!

I've always loved clementines until I tried satsumas. Satsumas are delectable. They are so much more flavorful and juicy than clementines. Satsumas get eaten so quickly at my house that I haven't had an opportunity to try them in a recipe...yet. Satsumas are the best!!

Satsuma is my champion, I tried one today! bursting with flavor, sweetness and delight. Tiny is size, but large in taste.

I am partial to Clementines , as I have eaten them for years, and also used them in salads, desserts, and of course, what is potpourri without the peelings !!! Ahhhh !!! Boy, they sure do go quickly when they are put in a bowl on the kitchen table.

The best Satsumas come from Louisiana. They do not have the top knot that you mention though. They are very sweet and easy to peel. I always look for them at the market.

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine.....you are so tasty, fun and juicy, really glad to have you, Clementine! Or how about, Oh Clementine, Oh Clementine, how lovely are your sections! Nothing beats this tasty little citrus treat! Enjoy them AND get some Vitamin C and other essential nutrients!

In our family we have become fond of the Satsumas, which we initially tried because in the beginning of the book, Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robin and his father are eating Satsumas for breakfast. When we first read that, several years ago, we actually had to look up in the dictionary what a Satsuma was. Then what joy when we saw them at Whole Foods and brought them home to eat. There was no way we weren't going to like them! We haven't found out if Christopher Robin also liked Clementines.

What about the grapefruit? This competition should have all citrus fruit and different brackets leading to one winner.

Clementine is my favorite and I'm a Floridian, so I have had my and several other peoples shares of different types of oranges. I like the easy to peel skin and the lower acidity!

Love the zestier satsumas - but just can't get enough of tree ripened fruit.

Both! Clementines are classic and Satsumas punch it up a notch!

Never heard of the Satsuma but I'll be looking to try it out now.

Clementines generally seem fresher--though I don't know whether that's true. Besides, they are so CUTE.
