K-Food of January, Satsuma & HallabongCitrus Fruit Easy to Peel

Satsuma and hallabong are orange-like fruit that are mainly produced during the cold winter months. They have a refreshing fragrance and sweet-and-sour taste. Unlike oranges, satsumas can be easily peeled by hand. They contain a large amount of vitamin P which is good for strengthening capillaries. Hallabong was named after Mt. Halla on Jeju Island due to its similar shape to that of the top of a mountain. With soft and juicy pulp, it has a high sugar content of 13–14o Brix.

Satsumas and hallabong are favorite fruits of many Koreans in the winter. As soon as the harvesting season starts, you can easily find posts on various internet communities, showing people with a tray of the fruit, their fingers yellow from peeling.

Both types of citrus are also popular with foreigners. They are exported to Canada, Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the US.
