Dekopons -hot new citrus- do we have them yet?
Probably a week early but I'd like to try this cross between a Mandarin and an Orange as they sound pretty darn tasty: http://www.latimes.com/features/food/...
Give a shout out if you come across them, probably at a Whole Foods or Asian markets I'd think.
I read about these too. I'm guessing not yet. Time to start harassing Urban Fare. sounds like something they would bring in.
Found 'em! They sell under the name of Sumo Mandarins. Bought a few at the ex Capers on 4th (just can't get around to calling it Whole Foods....).
Although they may not be the second coming of the orange they're pretty tasty with an almost even split of orange and mandarin flavour with large somewhat firm sections (seedless of course).
Not being a regular eater of whole oranges, besides Mandarins at Christmas and the occasional Clementine, I'm curious as what serious citrus fans think.
I see that the oh so delicious Sumos have arrived in local stores for their short run.... WTH on the price at Whole Foods/Capers? $4.00/lb.means the three oranges I bought were 9 bucks and change!
Hopefully that is going to drop in the next week or so.
They're large and hilariously gnarly looking like they were crossed with Ben Grimm/Thing DNA....
