Honey Pomelo

While grocery shopping yesterday and scanning the fruit section for what  new fruits I could buy to try. I spotted Honey Pomelo on offer, 2 huge ones for $3.00. So being a grapefruit addict at the moment and knowing a Pomelo is pretty similar. I thought I would buy some and see what they are really like.

For those of you wondering –  What on earth is a Pomelo? This is what one looks like:



They are pretty easy to prepare. First I cut a bit of the flesh off the top.


Then I cut the Pomelo into quarters

Once you have done this, you can easily slice the flesh away from the thick skin using a sharp knife.

It will look like this once you have removed all the skin:


and it is then ready for you to enjoy. My 3 year old didn’t like it, but I thought it was lovely. Not as bitter as some grapefruits and a nice healthy snack.

  • I’m 13 and my dad bought this on tuesday I think, so only today (sunday 7:00PM) i decided to try it. I unwrap it slice it in half like an orange and in half again to make quarters, peel of the skin, cut into slices, and eat it… Tasty! I thought it would be like a grapefruit, bitter, but it was actually sweat and bitter (not so bitter) and i liked it! Also thanks for posting this Guide you could say on how to actually slice it open.
