Dear Readers, I present to you Sumo Oranges! Top bun resembling that of a sumo wrestler notwithstanding, the size and Japanese origins are true to its namesake.
The skin might appear tough and rough but it's actually easy to peel. The membranes are also thin enough hiding pulp with texture very much like a grapefruit or pomelo. These oranges are seedless and really really sweet.
The Japanese spent 30 years getting them just right and our Aussie farmers have finally mastered the crops after 10 years of growing them. Effort well worth it. They are much prized in Japan and so they should be here.
You can find them in Thomas Dux and selected Coles and Safeway supermarkets.
