Saint Ann very early Satsuma

St. Ann is a newer variety of Satsuma developed by L.S.U. from 1960 through the 1990s. It was developed primarily as a field Satsuma for the citrus industry. It is a very high yield, very early Satsuma, which will outproduce any other type 2 to 1. It was released to the citrus growers in Plaquemines Parish in 1993. 

 Any other Satsuma ( Owari, Brown Select, etc. ) will produce between 80 to 100 lbs. of fruit per bush. An established St. Ann should produce 150 to 200 lbs. per bush.This is a very bushy tree with lots of branches.

It is classified as a very early Satsuma producing fruit as soon as August 15 and definitely in Sept. Saint Ann Satsumas are green and yellow on the outside in August, but ripe inside and can be picked when green in color.  Contact me soon if interested in high production. LSU describes the St. Ann as "tender and melting with excellent taste and flavor." All trees have had Satsumas on them and will produce some fruit this coming August. These are in 5 gallon pots at $35 each.

Five varieties of Satsumas grow well in this area.
All Satsumas taste more similar than different. Brown select is a little larger than the others. Saint Ann is juicier than the others. All are cold hardy.Your main consideration should be when you want to eat them. Ripening schedule follows.

Early Saint Ann Late August to September
Louisiana early Late August to September
Armstrong Mid September to October
Brown Select Mid October to Mid December
Owari Mid November to Mid January
An early and a late Satsuma will allow you to pick fruit for about 4 months. I have all 5 varieties in stock.

Satsuma info

If you are a big time Satsuma fan the proper way to grow Satsumas is this.

Plant an early, mid-season and a late Satsuma. This will allow you to pick Satsumas from late August to eary January, about 6 months a year.
