Frieda's Specialty Produce - Tahitian Pummelo


What is a Tahitian Pummelo?

  • Also known as Sarawak pummelo, this beautiful large citrus is believed to have originated in Southeast Asian island of Borneo then developed in Tahiti. The medium-large citrus has pale-yellow rind that is thinner than traditional pummelo. Prized for its flavor, the juicy, amber color pulp has a lemon-lime flavor with a hint of melon. Some fruit could contain a lot of seeds.

How to Eat

  • Half the fruit at the equator, then halve again. Remove seeds and core, then slice off and discard rind and pith. Serve up the segments fresh out of hand, or add to salads. You can also enjoy as you would a grapefruit–cut in half and enjoy with a spoon.
