What is a Pummelo?
- Pummelos, also known as Chinese grapefruits, are the largest of the citrus fruits, ranging in size from a small cantaloupe to nearly the size of a basketball. They are slightly pear-shaped, greenish to yellow-pink and thick skin. The flesh may be white, pink or rose red and has a sweet and tart flavor without the bitterness of a grapefruit.
