{sumo citrus!}

28 Mar


i just love seasonal produce.  i love looking forward to something…

we are so spoiled – especially in the US – to get food whenever we want it… including produce.  and it baffles me when people complain about the taste of blueberries in january.

anyway – this is one piece of amazing produce that you can only get your hands on at select markets for about a month or so out of the year, usually beginning mid to late february.  they are called sumo citrus.  and they are completely out of this world!!


i know what you’re thinking… “that looks kind of like a clementine, i’ve had clementines… i love them!”  well, i love them, too.  but this is not a clementine or a cutie or a tangerine or anything you’ve ever had that’s orange… unless, of course… you HAVE had one… 😉 {have you?!}

it’s the most amazing piece of citrus i have ever eaten.  for real.


i love how when i peeled this and then fotographed it, the design almost looks like the outline of a sumo wrestler… haha!


super duper easy-to-peel…


so unbelievably delicious!!  it seems like i eat at least one a day when they are in season…


unfortunately, they are not exactly inexpensive… but sometimes they do go on sale, and whatever it’s just one of those things that’s totally worth it to just splurge on. it’s not every day you can just go to the store and buy a sumo citrus… this piece of fruit kinda makes you work for it… just not in the peeling process – that’s easy-peasy! 😉
