Sumo oranges (aka American Dekopons) are now in stores. They'll only be around for the next month or so. We picked up a bunch at Mitsua in Mar Vista and they were as delicious as I remember.
I wonder why they are called Sumo? In Japan they are known as just Dekopon.
i think they've gotten a little better! more orangey flavor than the first year.
the first year it was just sugar and water...
Yup! Last year they also had a little more acid, especially the early ones. These early ones were SPOT on.
If I recall correctly the couple of articles I read last year, the trees were only recently mature enough to bear decent amounts of fruit. Supposedly, the fruit was going to get better as the trees matured.
Hmm have been reluctant to try them again since they were so oddly sweet. Might have to try again
Sumos are great. Whole Foods has really good quality Sumos.
the sumos at WF are fantastic and an expensive habit. that big nob at the top of each sumo probably costs us a quarter to $0.50 at WF. thanks for the heads up.
Also, they sell organic ones at the Santa Monica Farmer's market... but they are an investment...
