Sumo Oranges - Unique Treat!

Sumo Oranges! 30 years in the making for this amazing fruit! I had my first Sumo Orange in February of 2012 and looked forward to this season to get my hands on some more. This orange was created in Japan with a California Navel and a Mandarin and magic happened. In Japan it is called Dekopon but got the name "Sumo" when in landed in the United States.

Sumo oranges have a taste that is hard to describe. Imagine the full flavor of a mandarin orange, a perfect blend of sweet and a tiny bit of sour, and the size of a navel orange. Love the way mandarins peel? You will love the peel on this fruit. The appearance of this fruit is also endearing . . . wrinkles and puckers but oh so beautiful and perfect on the inside.

If you see them in the store you must try them! The season is winding down and I cannot wait for next year!


  1. Wow! This looks crazy! I love foods like this. So strange and amazing.

  2. I just saw these at the store over the weekend! I was with my husband and when I pointed them out, his response was, "I think they went bad." :)

  3. I just had my first Sumo orange on Sunday, and have a post coming up tomorrow about them!
