Mikan

Satsuma

Although originally introduced to Japan from China, it was contact with Japan that introduced this fruit to the West, explaining why it is known by the name Satsuma, the historic name for one of the areas it is grown. Usually seedless and with a very loose skin that makes it easy to peel, mikan grow in great abundance in Japan. Mikan can be sweet, but often have a refreshing tartness and are classically enjoyed in autumn and winter seasons.
