Yay, number one in a (probably short) series of post featuring exciting, exotic and down right strange fruits.
Todays strange fruit is the Pomelo or Chinese Grapefruit.
Lets take a look.
Now we’re getting somewhere, look at the thickness of that pith!
Segments, the size is difficult convey without something in the picture to give scale, these are about 8-9cm long!
Ready to eat.
Really rather good, more like an Orange than Grapefruit, I think that is mostly because of the lack of the bitter edge that you often get with a Grapefruit. The flesh is also very robust, almost meaty, and I mean that in a good way 🙂
Will I buy one again?
Probably not, the effort involved in opeing it and removing all the membranes just isnt worth it. I’ll stick with nice easy to peel Clementines 🙂
Join me next time when I tackle another extreme strange fruit!
