Satsumas are a citrus fruit originally grown in Japan. They are small and very easily peeled, similar to a clementine. Satsumas contain vitamin C and folic acid, along with antioxidants called flavonoids, which work with vitamin C to fight free radicals (cells that can cause serious problems like heart disease).
Both satsumas and clementines are types of mandarin oranges. While similar to satsumas, clementines should not be confused with their citrus cousins. Each type of mandarin has its own distinct flavor with the easily-peeled skin. Clementines are one of the most popular fruits we have, and satsumas are close on their heels.
