Pomelo NOW only 59p in Lidl (my one anyways) and approx £2 in most other supermarkets delicious fruit like a nice tasting grapefruit

UPDATE ****59p TODAY*******
These are really delicious, and you can easily buy 5 of these to make up your £50 with voucher spend. I would get 10 of these.
The price in Morrisons is £2 and around same in most supermarkets. Were 89p last week in Lidl.
I know its a deal on fruit and HUKD users aren't particularly fond of fruit i.e. the juices and potential sticky fingers could leave marks on our PS4 pads, Moto Gs and damage our Chinese imported b/tooth watches (especially if you have the white strapped version like me). Although quality streets and malteser stains are acceptable.

If you are not sure the best time to eat these I would advise after a few packets of crisps or pork scratchings. A pomelo offsets the saltiness nicely.

If you are on prescription meds (list at link) there is a possibility of interaction for most of the listed drugs: evidence.nhs.uk/for…ice

lol best description in a long while.
Must try one
Great price and a great tasting fruit!

It takes a little more work to peel than an orange or grapefruit but it's all so worth it.
brought one last week no taste to it what so ever it looked nice went off very quickly
Love the post description and the fruit as well. Heat
Isn't a grapefruit a cross between the pomelo and an orange.
They are nice, not as sharp as grapefruit, easy to eat as the juice doesn't go everywhere.
Love pomelos heat from me.

I find the best way to eat these is to peel all the segments then pop it in the fridge. Then when it's chilled, it'll be ready to eat and you can eat as much as you like in one go.

Takes more time to prepare at the start but you'll enjoy the fruit more without having to stop and peel.
They're nice but I wonder why they're so overpackaged.
I thought it was a giant onion.

​I was thinking exactly the same, it's OK I won't tell her that you announced it to the media though. (_;)
Pomelo is very nice. Surprise you can get it in UK. It can be bit bitter. Remember to peel off the skin of the inner flesh before you get LOL.
yummmm
be aware that if you are on any prescription pills that clash with grapefruit, you also should avoid pomelo. which is a shame as i really like grapefruit/pomelo juice.
Blood pressure tablets are the main ones to watg but also others so worth checking as mentioned..

I've had these on sample in Costco and were nice, wasnt tempted to pick up one up though at the time, similar price if I recall.

The (non-recyclable) shrink-wrap would do that; why does it need an additional (non-recyclable) net and handle? They're scared we won't be able to pick them up?

It's relatively new in the UK but has been here for a few years. Usual price is £1.50 and was in Lidl recently so I'm surprised to hear some supermarkets are trying to flog them for £2.
I love pomelo, for me it's a perfect fruit, it tastes like a grapefruit, but a lot less bitter. Yummy.

Where did you bring it from? Maybe you brought it from too far away.
*even cheaper, a few days ago I got pomelos for 0.79 each, Lidl Portsmouth
So it's gone up in price, great deal.
Tried the red one in Aldi and it tastes like a giant strawberry.
Love pomelo's voted hot ,normally £1.49
Love these. I found them for 99p in a local shop once. But usually £2.

It's far cheaper than the normal price of ~£1.50, and that was only at one specific store! They probably had a crate of them going rotten.

This needs putting up on the original post IMO. Can lead to overdose:

I wish they still did sweetie fruits over here. they were the best, a pomelo/grapefruit cross, so sweet n juicy
