The Instacart guide to pomelo

About pomelo

A pomelo is the widest citrus fruit variety on earth, and it resembles a grapefruit. Some pomelos are just a couple of inches smaller in diameter than soccer balls. Pomelos also taste a lot like grapefruit, although they are known for having a more delicate flavor. Some people describe that flavor as floral and find that pomelos are less bitter than grapefruit. This versatile fruit is a popular ingredient in Vietnamese, Thai, Malaysian, Tahitian, and Chinese dishes.

Pomelos vary in shape from round to oval. They are typically lighter in weight than people expect, considering their impressive size. When unpeeled, they have a grapefruit scent. These fruits have yellow or green rinds and thick pith. Inside a pomelo, there is a pulpy core that's a vibrant pink or soft white. Pomelos are native to Southeast Asia.
