Not exactly citrus, but I would go for the typical rootstock hybrids...
Other interesting citruses and pseudocitruses:

Citrus aurantium
Poncirus trifoliata

some Unshiu varieties (but they do well in warmer climates with not very cold and long winters)
Citrange (C-32, C-35, Troyer, Carizzo...)
Citrumelo Swingle
Citrangequat Thomasville

and maybe some hybrids.

Not many of them produce edible or tasty fruit.

I have Honey murcot Tangerine w/ fruits now ripening-- Persian lime w/ blossoms turning to baby fruits -- 2 meyer lemon with a ton of blossoms turning to fruits & some ripe meiwa kumquats that I've been picking & eating.
I had the pleasure of meeting Stan McKenzie at a citrus expo over there (SC). Nice man...he'll make some good suggestions for you.

You might be able to get away with kumquats with some protection. You could grow dwarf citrus in pots and winter them in the greenhouse or bright window indoors.

I can recommend contacting the folks at Just Fruits and Exotics. They are just outside of Tallahasse, in Crawfordville, FL. Informative website and they have friendly and knowledgeable staff.

About that Satsuma... we just had 4 days below freezing, low being about 10 and my orange is alive! I also have 2 kumquats in-ground and they are alive as well. I think all will loose most of their leaves but will put on new ones in the spring. This is their first time of below freezing that long. Last winter was 10 but only for a short time.
