They're back at Whole Foods (or at least at Whole Foods in Venice). Expensive as always, but so good.
What is the price per box at WF? At Mitsuwa they are $13.99 and at the Plaza Market in Koreatown they are $12.99 but the ones at the Plaza seem to be much drier than the ones I got at Mitsuwa.
They were $11.99 at HMart for a case of 12. Whole Foods was pretty pricey but they are of superior quality and I believe grown locally.
$2.99/lb at Whole Foods, and they seem to average about 2/3 lb each, so definitely pricier. I believe they are local - will check on that this evening. Does anyone know if the local ones are available at any of the farmers' markets?
Aren't they ALL grown "locally"?
they're all grown "locally" as in california, but as i understand it the trees are still pretty tightly held and i'm not aware of any that are available at farmers markets.
I believe the ones at HMart are from Korea.
Then they are not Sumos, they are Dekopons.
Are dekopon and sumo different? Thought they were the same fruit marketed with a different name here?
Sumos are Dekopons developed here. Imported Dekopons might be waxed and sterilized via heating and cooling while the CA Sumos would not be.
10-4 - I get all of that. The way your response was phrased made it seem like these were two different animals - not the same animal treated differently. Thanks.
FED The Wednesday SMFM has a rep from the growers with the Organic Sumos.
last weekend i bought sumos at the farmers market and they were absolutely perfect. they are rare, but they are there.
