Mikan season is here!

How exciting! They have arrived, Mikans! You might be thinking, "what is a Mikan". I am glad you ask. They are like tangerines in the States. The first crops are green and yellow, they are not as sweet as the orange ones that will follow in the next couple of weeks. But the reason that we are excited is the price. Fruit is costly in Okinawa, and these mikans will go on sale for about 10 yen per 100 grams. That is under 50 cents a pound, and that is cheap in Japan. So here we go! We are ready for some real sweet fruit, at a reasonable price.
