Anheuser-Busch and Foundation Windpower assembled a white wind turbine with a tower some 320 feet tall at the Budweiser brewery along Interstate 80. Hundreds of such mammoth turbines are in place 10 miles to the east in rural Montezuma Hills pastureland, but this one is in Fairfield city limits. Brewing beer at Budweiser should soon be a breeze.

ZOMG, the Sumo Fruit are Here Again! – Called Dekopon in Japan, Hallabong in Korea – Sweetest Citrus in the World

The sweetest citrus in the world, Sumo aka Dekopon デコポン aka Hallabong 한라봉, has just hit town, and for just the second time in history.

Get all the deets from last year’s Los Angeles Times. Check it:

“I’ve tasted more than 1,000 varieties of citrus, and to me the Dekopon is the most delicious.”

And now in 2012, they even have these special mandarin oranges in New York City.

Respect! These things could turn into a bigger seasonal food fad than those fictitious Mackinaw peaches. The Mackinaw peaches, Jerry! The Mackinaw peaches!

Dekapons as seen at the new Whole Foods Haight Ashbury last year – they’re back at WF this year but without the cardboard flats:

It’s the biggest mandarin you’ll ever see, per the Berkeley Bowl.

Yes they’re big, yes they’re ugly, yes they’re pricey, but they’re super sweet

Its like having a circus in your mouth.

But get ‘em fast, cause they’ll be all gone by next month.

Enjoy.
