Pomelo? What is this interesting item please?

Original Poster

Its like a big grapefruit but a lot nicer.

The one I got was yellow on the outside & was like a grapefruit in taste & texture. The one in the picture looks much more appealing than the one I had.

Much sweeter than grapefruit. Delicious fruit. Try it if you haven't before.

The one we recieved had not been very juicy at all, almost dry in texture inside - suggests that It had been sitting around for a while

It is yellow and looks different then one on the picture.

You can insult a pomelo as much as you want, it won't mind. It's very thick skinned.

Great price thanks. Heat added

For those not familiar with this Neaveau fruit. 2 varieties: sweet kind ( white flesh) and bitter kind ( pink flesh). skin/peel bitter and inedible except peel sometimes used in marmalade l. it's one of the ingredients in the forbidden fruit liqueur which used in Dorchester cocktails. RDA good source potassium 37% , Fibre 25% & vitamin C 609%.

its massive. i bought one today which weights 1.4kg

Posted last week. Tough skin but delicious fruit, wish my local supermarkets stocked.

I would like to try one of these but cant because of the medication im on

I also tried one of these from Lidl. texture was very dry, almost no juice. Really disappointed. Maybe try another. segment membrane peeled off very easily.

To anyone that's not had one don't just gobble into the pieces - they're like orange segments inside but you can take off the skin off the segments and then you've got the individual cells and if you want you can just pick them apart one by one and make it last ages - that's the fun of having one of these. I love it.

Biggest circumference is outside so rind is almost 3 quarters.

When these are in perfect condition, they really hit the spot
So worth the effort of preparing.

Will be in Lidl tomorrow for some of these if they have any left!

already posted and lidl ones are pale yellow inside

£5.99 each these in Harrods yesterday.

? People are measuring pomelos now? whats the carbon footprint on one of these 59p fruits of the week.

That's why I saw so many people buying this in Lidl today. Damn it! I thought it was still 99p. I would have bought a few. Love this stuff.

Now i see this fruit is named after Pomelo Anderson for obvious reasons

I'm pretty sure they don't have feet, it's just a fruit.
