Hello all, I was at my local nursey today and came across Arctic Frost satsuma. Anyone tried this yet? In a container or in ground? How's the flavor?
There is such a variety called frost Owari. AKA standard Owari.I would guess the name Arctic frost satsuma is some play on words and its really your normal owari satsuma
Which nursery carried Arctic Frost? It is supposedly able to withstand 5 to 10 degrees (F) colder than other satsumas.
Thanks Ryan you are most likely right. @gcarrier I got mine at Hidden Falls Nursery in Killeen, TX. About $40.00 for a 3.5 gallon pot and very bushy. Good luck!
If I can figure out the photobucket thing I will post a couple of pics of it. Thanks y'all!

How did it turn out so far?
I have Arctic Frost in a container in zone 8a. Its great. It's sweet with a little tart aftertaste. Very memorable, and everyone who tastes it loves it. Pretty much seedless. We'll see how it does this winter. I hope to plant it out next spring on the south end of the house along with a Thomasville Citrangequat that will be further out.
