デコポン dekopon is a fruit I am enjoying these days. deko is means something that pops out, that is convex. The reason is obvious.
It has that pear shape… or like a snout at the point where the stalk is attached. The size is like a big orange.
It can be opened by hand, the rind is thick, the inner skin is thick too, like a pomelo. Inside the fruit is perfectly round, the “nose” is empty.
Taste is between pomelo and mikan (mandarin orange), on the sour side. It has a nice flavor.
Did you know citrus trees had spears ? Apparently not all of them, so I had not noticed so far.
