Here is a link. Go there as I have to sleep nowm I had no idea when I wrote my last post people would start asking what a satsuma is and I was wrong. They come from Japan. A few days I had to explain an aubergine is an eggplant and by the way, a courgette is a tiny marrow. English is a wonderful language espescially if you are American?

I've never heard the name marrow for them before... around here, they're called zucchini, although one grocery chain in my area labels them "Italian squash" for some reason. Don't you love the regional differences in the language?

I didn't know it was a citrus fruit but we have a variety of plum here called a 'satsuma'.
