satsuma mandarin (Citrus reticulata)

Up North, you can only buy Satsumas for a week or two from Whole Foods. Then they disappear and you are left with ordinary clementines. I have discovered that in the South, however, they are available for months at a time. They are very popular down here and I eat two a day. We get them from Wild Oats (Nashville's answer to Whole Foods). I read in the Nashville Scene that Nicole Kidman frequents the salad bar at Wild Oats. Ooooh, celebrities!
