Pomelo is big, delicious, nutritious and infinitely useful citrus fruit. Pomelo is the lord of the citrus fruits.
Pomelo (Citrus grandis or Citrus maxima) is a citrus tree with the largest citrus fruit. Some varieties of pomelo can reach up to 10 kg. Originated from Asia and first that started to cultivate were the Chinese about 4000 years ago. Not accidentally it is called “Chinese grapefruit”. Today there are large plantations with this fruit in the U.S. and South America.
In Asia it is preferred bitterer, sour and juicy pomelo and Europeans are creating new varieties that are sweeter, but not as juicy as the Asian. The “Europeanized” pomelo tastes like grapefruit, but is less bitter, and therefore is often referred to as “honey grapefruit”.
