      -ciki- I like the sour / sweet ones too. Not sure if there’s just plain sweet here though. If I ask, then I just get a confused look :)

      -Ivy- I had no idea it was available in your place?! Well it’s all over the Philippines so you’ll not run out. And if you over here, I ‘ll be happy to give you as much info as you need!

      -Suzi- Your comment made me laugh. You’re the first person outside of the Philippines who “gets” the salt thing. I run away from fruit and salt mixed together!

      -Tim- Read more often! ;) Yes, still here. I wanted to see how the elections panned out. Pomelo seems to be in season year round, so you’ll be in luck in July / August.

    That looks really good! And I “get” the salt thing – I like salt on my watermelon, believe it or not! :-)

    Dude, you’re still in PI? Obviously I haven’t visited your page for a bit though I though you’d have left by now. We’ll be moving there on July 30.
    My wife gets very excited about Pomelo, although the fruit grown locally here doesn’t compare to that grown in PI.
    Man I miss the food.

    Later, Tim

      -food photographer- It’s interesting to see the same fruit change in different regions. Looking forward to Malaysian fruit.

    The pomelo is a common fruit found in the Philippines all year round. Much larger than a grapefruit, the flesh ranges from pale yellow to dark pink. The really good ones come from Davao in Mindanao but they cost quite a fortune when sold in Manila.

    This citrus is found elsewhere in Asia. I’ve tasted one in Bangkok and it’s sweet, fleshy and delicious. In Singapore, I bought a shiny-skinned pomelo in one of their public markets. I even found and tasted one in Jericho in Israel.

    Thank you for featuring some of our fruits in the Philippines. Except for the marang, all the fruits you mentioned – durian, lanzones, rambutan, mangosteen, pomelo, santol, jackfruit – are grown in my farm in Laguna.
