Pomelo – An Overview

If you’re looking for a unique citrus fruit with a unique flavor, the pomelo is a good choice. Not only are pomelos delicious and sweet, but they also have numerous health benefits. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at what sets pomelos apart from other fruits and why you should consider adding them to your grocery list.

What Is A Pomelo?

A pomelo, also known as Chinese grapefruit or shaddock, is a large citrus fruit with yellow-green rind and pinkish flesh. It’s similar in appearance to both oranges and grapefruit but has a sweeter taste and less acidic flavor. The flesh can range from light pink to ruby red depending on the variety. The rind of the pomelo can be anywhere from 1/8 to 1/2 inch thick and is covered in small bumps that make it easier to peel.

Health Benefits of Eating Pomelos

Pomelos are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, dietary fiber, calcium, magnesium, and more. They are low in calories but high in antioxidants which help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Eating just one pomelo provides over half of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C! Additionally, research suggests that eating pomelos may help reduce inflammation associated with conditions such as arthritis and asthma.

How To Choose And Store Your Pomelos

When selecting your pomelo at the store or farmers market, look for ones that are firm with no soft spots or blemishes on their skin. As with other citrus fruits, avoid any with broken skins as these will spoil quickly. Once you get them home it’s best to store them in the fridge where they will stay fresh for up to two weeks or longer if kept in an airtight container (such as a plastic bag). For longer storage times it’s best to freeze them as this will preserve their quality for up to six months!
