Most fruit trees require full sun conditions and satsumas are no exception. They should ideally get eight to 10 hours of direct sunlight, especially in spring during blossom and fruit formation.


Citrus like sandy, loamy soil with a slightly acidic pH. They're adaptable to different soil conditions such as rocks or clay, but will not tolerate salty soils. It is essential that the soil have good drainage.


Satsuma trees need ample water, so plan on consistent and deep watering throughout the growing season. After watering, water every two to three days, and then once every week to ten days thereafter during the growing season.

Temperature and Humidity

Although satsumas are slightly more cold hardy than other citrus trees, they need consistently warm temperatures like those found in their suitable USDA growing zones. Satsumas don't do well in arid, desert climates as they need humidity to thrive. During dry spells, you may find your satsuma benefits from being watered with the misting attachment on your garden hose.
