We have been waiting for a long time for the Sumos to return to Whole Foods because they are so absolutely, mind numbingly delicious! Get them now if you can because they are only around for about a month, and then they are gone will the following year. Why do we love them?  They are seedless, easy to peel, and without a doubt, the sweetest, most succulent citrus we've ever eaten (all without being super messy). Read the Sumo's story here.  They are huge and while they are not the cheapest fruit (2.99 a pound at Whole Paycheck), they are totally worth it.  If they are at a Whole paycheck near you, I highly suggest them!
