I wonder how the taste of a $13.33 Dekopon in Japan compares to the taste of the Sumo we get here in US from some where like Fresh Market for much less ( and not much taste to me), and how they both compare to a Xie Shan or a Kishu here in US ? ! Tom

Dekopon and Sumo are the same. Usually cost between 2 and 3 bucks each. They are both excellent.

I tried one Sumo for the first time recently from a local grocery store and while it was very good I prefer the current crop of clementines (W Murcott I believe) that is in stores.  One fruit is not a good sample size, though.
