Imamura is a late satsuma variety.
From Spain, Imamura is fairly thick skinned with the flesh being quite loosely connected to the cuticle, so peeling is simple. The segments are also slightly loose. The eating quality is excellent: a wonderful sweetness, rich flavour and a balancing acidity.
The fruit has good storage characteristics.
The tree is reputed to be a difficult to cultivate due to vigorous growth and variable fruit set.
