These oranges are known by the name Sumo Oranges (Sumo Citrus/Dekopon) and are medium-sized orange fruits, seedless and easy to peel oranges.
It’s named so Since the bump resembles the top-knot hairstyle of Sumo wrestlers.
The bump may make the fruit look ugly, unpleasant, or repulsive but don’t get misguided by the appearance.

“Although appearances can be deceiving, they can also be revealing”
Said to be the most pampered fruit in the world. The juice has a Heavenly taste!

Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
