As title says. It seems that satsumas have completely disappeared off the face of the earth. I can only find them in Marks and Spencer’s. Satsumas are one of the greatest things about winter. I don’t want clementines, mandarins or anything else I want satsumas. It’s not that late in the season! 😡

Ocado have had them off and on, and big sainsbos. Apparently only brits like them, everyone else prefers clems. sad

Easy peelers never taste as nice!

I'm with you OP! Clementines are rubbish, so-called easy peelers are fudging it - what are they?

However I did manage to get actual satsumas recently from both Sainsbury's and Asda.

Thank goodness there is a thread for this!!! I have been trying to find satsumas for weeks and there’s nothing but crappy mandarins everywhere.

Easy Peelers give me the rage!

Totally agree. Satsumas are the best. I've got them in Tesco but it seems to get harder every year. Glad I'm not the only one - and don't even get me stayed on the people who think all little oranges are the same!

Oh I have seen loads of them of late! Morrisons, Tesco and Asda all had them. I love them too. So did Aldi but theirs are shite. Bought Saturday and rotten this morning.

I got satsumas from Tesco but they didn't have a huge amount. My children won't eat any others

I totally agree. What the fuck are easy peelers?! It's winter and I want clems

BakedBeans47 Mon 23-Oct-17 12:50:37

Oh and Waitrose too

I have bought a lot of satsumas of late smile

Groovee Mon 23-Oct-17 12:50:38

I got them in Tesco and asda.

Me too! They are increasingly hard to come by.

'Easy peelers' - gah. Just tell me the actual name of the fruit!?!?

PandorasXbox Mon 23-Oct-17 12:52:21

I always find “easy peelers” anything but easy to peel!

SpinnerDryer Mon 23-Oct-17 12:53:09

Whats the difference between easy peelers & satsumas?

Apart from £2. Are they not as juicy?

LittleNoSleep Mon 23-Oct-17 12:53:53

Local markets are best. I get satsumas at ours, with proper baggy skins. None of your crap not-so-easy peelers.

ilovegin112 Mon 23-Oct-17 12:53:55

Booths have them if you live in the north

Satsumas are the best citrus. I can't bear Clementines or Easy Peelers.

Nothing beats the way a Satsuma tastes and smells.

LilithTheKitty Mon 23-Oct-17 13:01:15

YANBU but Asda has satsumas. £1 A bag.

ZigZagIntoTheBlue Mon 23-Oct-17 13:32:01

Omg I so agree. My whole family are hmm when I go into one about it but I don't fucking want easy peelers or Clementine or any of that shit! Sadly excited when I find actual satsumas!

PlaidMaid Mon 23-Oct-17 13:34:30

Morrisons have them this week - £1. My DH fully agrees with you and kicks off when I buy easy peelers!

I have found my people! My Sainsburys has satsumas luckily. Just had to have one or 3 now, yum!
