I love, love, LOVE pomelo!! Coco does too!
Pomelo is a larger and slightly sweeter version of a grapefruit, found in Southeast Asia. The rind is very thick and, like grapefruit, very bitter. However, it is very easy to peel it back and expose the delightfully juicy flesh inside. They are great eaten all by themselves (no need to sprinkle sugar on like grapefruit), they pair well with seafood and are tasty in salads. They have the perfect sweetness, kind of a cross between a tangerine and a grapefruit. Unfortunately pomelo is also very expensive here in Manila. One stinkin’ pomelo can run you $4.00 in some stores! One!! We still buy them almost every week though because they are just so. darn. tasty! We can’t get enough of ’em!!!! Love.
