Imagine, for decades you missed something and then you got it again! Excited.

I was so happy and excited when I discovered Pomelos recently, after decades I never found them in the area where I live.

This can be said to be nostalgic for me. When I was little, I ate Pomelo straight from the tree in my grandmother's house.

I get excited when the new shopping mall in my city provides a variety of food supplies that are already hard to find elsewhere.

I bought one of this Pomelo for almost 3 USD and weighing 1 KG more.

About Pomelo

Pomelo fruit is a popular citrus group in Asia, almost similar to grapefruit in the inside.

If the inside of the grapefruit pulp is lighter, then the inside of the Pomelo fruit is slightly pink with an orange color. So the color of the Pomelo pulp is softer.

Pomelo rind is quite thick. Like foam. When I was a child, my father made me replicas of cars and other forms of toys using the thick skin of the Pomelo, and it doesn't break easily.




Big Size and Great Benefits

Pomelo normal size is like the size of an adult's head, sometimes it can be bigger.

The large size of the Pomelo fruit is also well balanced by the benefits of this fruit.

Pomelo fruit is known to be a rich source of protein and fiber.

The fiber helps maintain digestion and prevents constipation.

Pomelo fruit is considered good for diet intake because it is rich in protein and fiber, which makes a person feel fuller for longer.

Besides, Pomelo fruit is also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants which can ward off free radicals and boost immunity in the body.

Being rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, Pomelo fruit also has anti-aging properties that make skin look young and fresh.


How to Eat Pomelo

To make it easier to peel the pomelo fruit, we need to cut the pomelo fruit into pieces with a knife. The skin was thick on the outside but felt like elastic foam on the inside.

After dividing it into several parts, we can easily peel the skin off without using a knife.

Pomelos are good to eat on their own without any added seasonings.



About Texture and Taste

The pomelo fruit pulps look big compared to the citrus group in general. The pulps are easily separated from one another.

The taste of Pomelo is sweet, but there is a bit of bitterness that goes along with it like citrus in general.

We can add seasonings to fruit salads or here we usually use a saltier and spicy spice to make the Pomelos taste sweeter.

It's much bigger than it looks in the photos on its own! The hand is a good size comparison.

A handful size is not enough. Pretty big :)

Thanks for stopping by 😊
