A large citrus fruit that can weigh up to 25 pounds and grow one foot in diameter. Native to Southeast Asia, it is also cultivated for commercial use in California, Florida and Israel.

The rind of the pomelo is quite thick, but soft and easy to peel. The pulp ranges from pale yellow to deep pinkish red, and the taste is sweeter and more mild than its smaller cousin the grapefruit. For the ripest, choose one with a more yellow peel.
