“Think of a huge mandarin, easy to peel and seedless, with firm flesh that melts in the mouth, an intense sweetness balanced by refreshing acidity, and a complex, lingering mandarin orange aroma...”
Exceptionally sweet, Sumo Citrus is derived from Satsuma, Orange, and Mandarin.
Generally known as the shiranui variety in Japan, it was nicknamed the “dekopon” in reference to its uneven skin, and its distinctive Top Knot.
Not every dekopon is a Sumo Citrus however, only those meeting the enormously delicious size and taste standards.
Sumo Citrus is one of the world’s largest and sweetest mandarins, celebrated for its incredible taste and distinct looks. This rare seedless variety was originally cultivated in Japan in the 1970s by a grower who set out to develop the ultimate citrus experience. This variety was dubbed the “dekopon” in Japan and has been prized by those in the know ever since. Seedlings were first imported into the US in 1998, but because the Sumo Citrus is one of the most challenging varieties to grow, it wasn’t until 2011 that they became available to the public. After many years, we are now lucky enough to enjoy Sumo Citrus in the United States thanks to our dedicated farmers in California who maintain incredibly high growing standards
