    I was listening to Good Food on the way to Pasadena yesterday (2-19) and the Whole Foods Market. The Sumo citrus sounded so good, I looked for them when I got to WF. There they were! I wish I had bought more; wow! Were they delicious, with a bright, deep flavor! Thank you for introducing them to me.
