Pomelo is a large Asian citrus fruit that’s closely related to grapefruit.
It’s shaped like a teardrop with green or yellow flesh and a thick, pale rind. It can grow to the size of a cantaloupe or larger.
Pomelo tastes similar to grapefruit, but it’s sweeter.
It contains several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that make it a healthy addition to your diet.
Pomelo is a type of citrus fruit native to South and South-East Asia. It’s the biggest of all citrus fruit weighing between 2-4 pounds (1-2 kg). It comes in several different varieties all larger than grapefruit.
Pomelo is the least acidic of all citrus fruit and does not taste as “sour” as other citrus fruit. While some varieties are juicier than others, pomelo is typically less juicy than other citrus fruit.
The skin of the pomelo is smooth like a grapefruit, but the fruit itself is quite a bit larger. Botanists believe that the pomelo came before the grapefruit and that the grapefruit is a cross between a pomelo and an orange.
