EVER HEARD OF UNSHIU??? Citrus Glorious Citrus, Africa Glorious Africa.
Hey everyone, so other than my South African mates who have heard of a Naartjie?? To be honest I don't have a clue what this is called in any other language than Afrikaans, do you??


Upon Further reserach I have discovered that this is infact indigenous to China of all places, big surprise?? Check that all out here as per wikipedia Citrus Unshiu: Citrus unshiu is a semi-seedless and easy-peeling citrus species, also known as unshu mikan,[1] cold hardy mandarin,[2] satsuma mandarin,[2] satsuma orange, naartjie,[2] and tangerine.[2] It is of Chinese origin, named after Unsyu (Wenzhou), China, but introduced to the West via Japan.[1][3][4][5] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citrus_unshiu



Jesuits brought the fruit from Asia to North America in the 18th century, starting groves in the Jesuit Plantation upriver from New Orleans, Louisiana (then a part of New Spain). The municipal street "Orange" in New Orleans, was originally named "Rue Des Orangers" and the site of the Jesuit grove. The groves were later re-cultivated farther south in Plaquemines Parish to provide greater protection from harmful frosts, and have continued to the present day. The Becnel family are the largest growers of Louisiana Citrus.[16]

The fruit became much more common in the United States starting in the late 19th century. In 1878 during the Meiji period, Owari mikans were brought to the United States from the Satsuma Province in Kyūshū, Japan, by the spouse of the US Minister to Japan, General Van Valkenberg, who renamed them satsumas.[17] Between 1908 and 1911 about a million Owari mikan trees were imported throughout the lower Gulf Coast states.[15] Owari is still commonly grown in Florida.[14] The towns of Satsuma, Alabama; Satsuma, Florida; Satsuma, Texas; and Satsuma, Louisiana were named after this fruit. By 1920 Jackson County in the Florida Panhandle had billed itself as the "Satsuma Capital of the World." However, the commercial industry was damaged by a −13.3 °C (8.1 °F) cold snap in 1911, a hurricane in 1915,[15] and a very cold period in the late 1930s.




So where are these gorgeous naartjies you may ask? In our garden on our plot, how lucky we are. The landlord has about 4 of these amazing Tree's on the premesis and they have just as one can be seen,started fruiting prolifically!


These started early, which sadly may mean there wont be a nice harvest come spring. What fruit tree is this? Gorgeous peaches coming soon.


Nature the incredible, have an amazing weekend and be blessed.

Love and light.
