Back by popular demand!!! Satsumas, a Japanese varietal, are a fan favorite because of how cute they are. Just kidding, though they are adorable. Satsumas taste sweeter than a clementine with a loose skin that make them easier to peel. Citrus found in supermarkets are picked premature so they can handle the long transport to NY, but our citrus is hand harvested at its peak flavor for perfection. Only part of the reason these satsumas sold out last year.
This family-owned citrus farm is located in the heart of Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The Becnel family has farmed in this region for decades and Farmer Thomas is the 6th generation. Farmer Thomas' farm is located in the furthest South region of LA that still has enough soil to support citrus cultivation. Once known for having ideal growing conditions for citrus, many farms have been closing due to the climate changing. This family farm is one of the last of a Louisiana citrus legacy.
Our operations manager helped sell this citrus to some of the top restaurants in New Orleans like Herbsaint and Dante's Kitchen when he lived down South and was blown away with the flavor and passion Farmer Thomas has for citrus growing. The original seeds on this farm came from the Canary Islands in the mid 19th centruy. It’s been said that Louisiana citrus is sweeter than that grown in FL, Texas, and CA.
We're very honored and excited to bring New Yorkers citrus that's harvested by Farmer Thomas for pure flavor perfection. Because it is so rare to find citrus in New York straight from the farm, we suggest you stock up.
