Satsuma mandarins (Citrus unshiu Marc.) are among the most cold hardy citrus varieties that have sufficient fruit quality for potential commercial marketing as well as for homeowners outside the typical citrus belt in the Lower Rio Grande Valley (Mortensen, 1983). Early-maturing, high-quality, cold-tolerant varieties of satsumas were obtained from Japan for evaluation in Texas 'Miho' and 'Seto' are two such varieties developed from seed produced by controlled pollination of 'Miyagawa' satsuma (similar to 'Okitsu', which was introduced to Spain in 1983, starting its commercial spread in 1987, (IVIA, 1983)). 'Miho' and 'Seto' were obtained as seed from the Fruit Tree Research Station - Okitsu Branch, Obitsu, Shimizu, Shizuoka 424-02 Japan in November, 1984.
