A satsuma is quite like an orange, tangerine or mandarin but it has loose skin and its flavour is less intense.
It is an easier fruit to peel and is less juicy as well. It is a great orange to eat on the go.

As you can see satsumas have a hint of fat, calcium and phosphorus, and they are also quite sweet and acidic.
But as with other types of orange, they also contain a good amount of vitamin c as well.
So guinea pigs can eat satsumas, but only once or twice a week because of their sugar and acidic content.
But they are a nice addition to their diets all the same because of the vitamin c content.
However do take out the pips first before feeding them.
