I did ask before, but the replies probably got lost in the thread.

I'm in Australia, Satsuma = plums?

What is the significance of Satsuma in a Xmas stocking please?

Satsuma = similar to a clementine (tiny peelable orange thing). When I was young everyone got those in their stocking in the UK along with chocolate coins and I seem to remember getting nuts too. No idea why, maybe it's a throwback to the war when fruit was rationed?

Satsuma is a little orange. I'd imagine the significance is from war time when a satsuma was a real treat. My parents always put one in our stockings and I always put one in my kids stockings- we call them Christmas oranges in our house!

I used to get one in my stocking but it was referred to as "a mandarin orange"?? That's not a term I've heard in ages!?!

Thanks, we also have the little bags of chocolate coins, aussie currency, of course, lol They are kind of traditional too

Mandarins will be the closest fruit.
