Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone has info to share of this variety? I am always looking for new and interesting varieties to add to my collection and this seems to be a pretty new one.

Any thoughts?

I hope every had a great holiday! This is one of the best weeks of the year! Time to buy some new trees with Christmas present money! :)

Thanks! Christy

Sure, Xie Shan (pronounced, "Shee Shan") is probably the best tasting of all the satsumas. An excellent early satsuma. If I could find one in California, I'd have one in my collection.

I agree with patty. Never have tried one myself but many people have said how good it tastes.

Patty, surely someone it CA has one for you.

Nope. Not that I can find, Mike. I have looked everywhere. :-( If anyone is aware of a grower or propagator, I'm all ears.
