Developed in Japan and grown by farmers in our own San Joaquin Valley, Sumo's are like large mandarins but maybe the sweetest and juiciest we've ever had (especially for their size). Sumo's are distinctive in their appearance on account of a trademark knot of skin on the top of the fruit. What makes them so apt for snacking is just that--their skin, which is loosely adhered to the flesh of the fruit, making it incredibly easy to peel..enjoy! No bitterness or sweetness here and if the ease of the peel wasn't enough, Sumo's are also seedless.
We get these beauties ourselves directly from the farmers, who hand prune the fruit during harvest. Fair warning, we're only due to have them a month or so longer so hurry in!
