Top Secret Tangerines Are Back -- And They're Not So Secret At The Front Door Of Wegmans
Sumo tangerines are a special variety grown in secrecy in California. Last year, we found them at Family Market in Columbia. Today, they were right at the front door of Wegmans. They're sampling, not secrets.
They're also absolutely delicious, large and sweet with lots of juice. The peel pulls away easily. The sections have a skin so thin that it's almost like they're all pulp. You get a strong citrus flavor, less sweet than those tiny oranges and more flavor of great fresh-squeezed juice.
Check out the Sumos at Wegmans. Anyone seen them elsewhere this year?
(Update: The Sumos are expensive. I hadn't noticed the price when Mrs. HowChow grabbed a box. I had remembered that they were really unique and special. Even boxed, they're more than $2 each. So just make sure that's worth it for you.)
