This week’s featured video was produced by Matt Lollar, UF/IFAS Commercial Horticulture Agent in Santa Rosa County, to highlight the satsuma mandarin harvest in North Florida.  The video showcases the skill and care needed to harvest satsumas without injuring their soft peels.  In fact, the term “kid glove” or “zipper skin” is used to describe satsumas because they are so easy to peel and internal segments separate easily.  A special thanks goes to Mack Glass, owner of Cherokee Satsumas in Jackson County, Florida, for the opportunity to film this video.
