So, a pomelo. A pomelo is an Asian fruit, and otherwise known as an Asian grapefruit. It is absolutely GINOURMOUS! Seriously it is like 3x bigger than an orange. My pictures fail to show its large-ness. Okay it is like the size of a melon which is still pretty big for a citrus fruit. You can find a pomelo in many groceries stores from about Nov-March. Sometimes its with the oranges, sometimes its with the coconuts.
If you open up each segment, you will see that the seeds are huge! Well, they are not really seeds, just the segments inside of segments. But they are actually so big you can pick them out and eat them!
Once you finally get to taste it, you will notice that the flavour is a mix between a grapefruit and an orange...more leaning towards a grapefruit. It is really delicious and quite refreshing. I just ate it straight up - but there are plenty of uses for pomelo and many more recipes for how to use it. Perhaps that will be another challenge, but for now, I couldn't help myself ;)
