Sumo Mandarins are back in season! 

Did you know that Sumo Mandarins are one of the world’s largest and sweetest mandarin? This rare seedless variety was originally cultivated in Japan in the 1970s. The Sumo Mandarin is one of the most challenging varieties to grow, it wasn’t until 2011 that they became available to the public. One single mandarin is full of nutritional benefits including 163% of your recommended daily amount of vitamin C!  Sumo Mandarins were also bred to be easy to eat, with easily separated segments, no seeds, and skin that peels away cleanly and easily. If you haven’t tried a Sumo Mandarin yet or even if you have, you must order them now. These mandarins are only in season till the end of this month and you really don’t want to miss out on their unique juicy, tangy, and zesty taste.
