Pomelo fruit from The Philippines
From the outside the Pomelo fruit looks like a Melon of some kind. The skin is surprisingly soft, and relatively easy to peel. Inside The Philippines version of the Pomelo looks like a giant pink grapefruit.
What does pomelo taste like?
Within each segment are strong pulpy cells that contain the sweet citrus like flesh. It makes The Filipino Pomelo a very easy fruit to eat. Although a little large for just one person.
Filipinos eat the Pomelo fruit with salt. But without salt it tastes just great. A really good fruit to take on hikes or treks due to its high level of water and ability to travel well.
