“Jesuits brought the fruit from Asia to New Spain. Groves started by Jesuits in the 18th century in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana, have continued to the present day.” (Wikipedia)
While at the grocery yesterday we spied a display of satsuma oranges. I was taken by the fact that a bit of the stem was attached to each orange and purchased one for photographic (and gastronomic) exploration.
At cookinglight.com we learned that, “Among the sunny-colored citrus fruits that brighten produce aisles during winter, satsumas hit peak season this month. Satsumas are one of the sweetest citrus varieties, with a meltingly tender texture.”
