Here is a simple question, what is your favorite Satsuma variety?
For me hands down it is now Miho, at least when it comes to taste, it is an early variety ripening a little after St. Ann or Louisiana Early, but before Armstrong where I live. Has a complex tangy flavor, far better than the other three early varieties mentioned above, plus it is nearly seedless. It does have its shortcomings though, it is relatively delicate, thin skinned and easily damaged, the fruit is also fairly small. I am only in my second year of growing Miho, so only time will tell if this performance is consistent year after year.
Owari is a close second, it is also good, but of course it is a bit later ripening, it is a much more durable fruit wit thicker peel, and much larger than the Miho, perhaps sweeter, but lacks some of that complex tang of Miho.
Owari is a fantastic Mandrin but Kishu is my favorite, you jusy have to eat 4 or 5 or juice them and add a little Jack Daniels Single Barrel....... It is hard to pick a favorite.....Ponkin is a great one. Mandrins picked at the peak are all great. I guess it depends on when picked, where grown and the available nutrients to the tree.........
