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?
Pomelo fruit is not bitter at all. The taste is certainly a part of the citrus family but from the sweet variety. Pomelo fruit segments are large, and break easily. But unlike its grapefruit cousins the Pomelo segments stay intact.
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.
