Comparison of store Satsuma with ghouse Owari

Picked up a satsuma (unknown variety) from my local Cop-op and thought I’d compare it
with my ghouse grown Owari. From outward appearance, they are different varieties. Big difference in size, fruit to peel ratio, and brix!

Greenhouse top, store bought bottom.

Greenhouse: unpeeled 45g, peeled 29g, ratio peeled/unpeeled .64, brix 10
Store: unpeeled 62g, peeled 49g, ratio peeled/unpeeled .79, brix. 15

So for me it’s got to be the challenge…regardless of the outcome!
