The Fruit with Three Names!
Shiranui is a very rare and prized citrus variety that originated in Japan from a cross between a local variety and Ponkan (aka Chinese Honey). In Japan, it's marketed as "Dekopon". In California, one of the companies out there has trademarked the name "Sumo". For the rest of us, we go by the original Japanese name of "Shiranui".
Whatever you call them, they are easy to peel, virtually seedless, and have a seriously good flavor. They're a little tart, with a richness that has made them famous. In Japan they sell them by the piece at a very high price. The Californians also pack them in small packages, also at a high price. We have them priced the same as Honeybells, the closest variety to them we offer. They're similar in size to a Honeybell, so don't be expecting a Clementine-scale fruit.
We found a grove of about 300 trees, and as far as we know that's most of them in Florida. We've secured this year's crop, and if you like them, can hopefully line them up in the future. Give them a try and let us know what you think!
