TESCO has announced that it will start selling green satsumas and clementines as part of plans to cut food waste.
You might be surprised, but green satsumas are actually perfectly ripe and taste just as sweet as orange ones!
Until now, large amounts of green satsumas were being thrown out by farmers, as Tesco, Sainsbury’s and other supermarkets weren’t buying them, saying that shoppers wouldn’t buy green satsumas.
However, following criticism for being far too fussy, Tesco will soon be selling green satsumas.
Satsumas and clementines actually grow green to begin with, only turning orange once summer begins to end and cool down.
But recently, warm temperatures during the early growing season for satsumas in September and October have continued to remain high into the autumn, which means that the process that turns the fruit orange is delayed.
