Satsuma mandarins are the featured fruit of the month by The Fruit Club. It's like holding on to the last bit of summer as we make our way into the colder months!
Grandma Penny Olson says the mandarins are not actually oranges, like we typically think, but they are actually part of the tangerine family. She says you can get your Satsuma mandarins at KMart on West 12th Street Thursday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. They will also have pecans and maple syrup.
