I perused my local Asian grocery, and didn't find anything interesting and out the corner of my eye I saw "Sumo" on a box in some ladies cart and nearly flipped, they had the Dekopon here in Maryland, at Lotte in Ellicott City so anyone who is interested go now while it is on sale! $9.95 a box! They're so delicious too!!

Here's my attempt at posting the pictures of the Sumo but bare with me because I've never posted pictures.

tropicaliste - you're so lucky! Ever since Harry posted a thread about these hard-to-find citrus, I've been searching form them! I even went to a Japanese grocery store today and did not find any. But, wow, since you're all the way on the east coast I am certain there must be some here in Oregon/Washington! LOL


RE: Attn: The Dekopon on EastCoast!

Thank you I couldn't figure that stuff out after reading the how-to-post-pics posting over and over. :)

On the "Sumo" site they list "assi" as a distributor in SoCal and since their home operations are here in MD they must have shipped a portion here and since all the citrus is imported regardless it only makes sense from a business standpoint. Maybe an "assi/rhee bros./Lotte" in your area?(It's a Korean business.) :)

They're very sweet and kind of a bit like the mandarins in the can except naturally sweet than those sugary cans, very "clean" and light on the citrus flavor. Some of the bottoms are naveled and the others have no navel... interestingly the navel ones have some kind of false sour fruit attached on the inside and tonight I opened one to find the inside had turned grayblack... waste of $1.65. Also so far no seeds...(boo)

BTW the other pic(showing the pricetag):¤t=Tropicalist.jpg

RE: Attn: The Dekopon on EastCoast!

Tropicaliste, sent you an email about posting pics...I tried to explain it here but the symbols wouldn't show up :o(

Here's your other picture with the Price...
