Satsuma Harvest

Workers harvest satsumas in the experimental fields at Auburn University's Gulf Coast Research Center in Fairhope. The town of Satsuma was named for the once-abundant crop in the region. Deforestation and changes in climate led to a decline in the satsuma groves, but in 1990, Auburn began working to restore them, with much success.
