Pomelo Fruit


The Pomelo Fruit is a citrus fruit native to South East Asia. It is usually pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white flesh and very thick pudgy rind. It is the largest citrus fruit, 15–25 cm in diameter and usually weighing 1–2 kg.

Other spellings for pomelo include pummelo, and pommelo, and other names include Chinese grapefruit, jabong, lusho fruit, pompelmous, Papanas, and shaddock. Pomelos are also referred to as chakotara in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India. In the Indian State, Manipur, this fruit is known as Nobab.

Pomelo is the largest citrus fruit. Its size (30 centimeters in diameter) and weight (up to 10 kilos) makes it easily known and explains the name in Latin: “Citrus Maxima”. It grows, like any other citrus, in tropical areas and doesn’t bear low temperatures.

It has a spongy thick rid and a pale yellow to green color when ripe; its taste is sweet, resembling to the grapefruit’s taste, but has nothing to do with the bitterness of the latter. Pomelo is native to Southern Asia – Fiji, Tonga and Hawaii, for a more exact localization. Because of its rareness its price is higher (in USA is sold for at least 2$ a piece). The most appreciated variety is the Chandler with a smoother skin followed by Tangelo and a Vietnamese variety.

The fruit is sodium and fat free and is a great source of potassium and vitamin C. Only a fourth of a pomelo (152 grams) provides 130% of the daily recommended doses of vitamin C and has 60 calories. Chinese use the skins and leaves for preparing ceremonial baths by boiling them. The purpose is to cleanse the person and repel evil.

Mostly Available At Fruit Stalls, Supermarket Around Perak.
