What does The Improved mean?

I have satsuma grafts that are one year old, but I am wondering if the Improved satsuma is anything different, or is it just a nursery sales gimmick?
I tried searching for the variety title, but what comes up in most cases is information on Satsuma. So I would like to know if anyone knows the difference between the well known Satsuma and what some members refer to as the Improved Satsuma?

Are you referring to the mandarin (tangerine) cultivars, or?

No I am referring to one member that has this variety of plum. So it’s about plum varieties.

It’s something that Fruitwood nursery offers. I’ve never seen it anywhere else. I’m thinking it was a branch on their tree that they consider improved.

You could always call fruitwood and ask them.
