The Pomelo is a citrus fruit, usually a pale green to yellow when ripe, larger than a grapefruit, with sweet flesh and thick spongy rind. The pulp color ranges between clear pale yellow to pink to red, and tastes like a sweet, mild grapefruit. But it has very little or none of the common grapefruit's bitterness.
One way to eat the Pomelo is to remove the rind, then peel the segments themselves to obtain the juice vesicles or 'flesh'. The Pomelo peel is thick, and is sometimes used to make marmalade. Candied then dipped in chocolate, the rind makes a magnificent grapefruity confection. Although more commonly eaten fresh, there is an increase in commercial uses for its juice.
