Pomelo, also known as pummelo, is the largest true citrus fruit and the ancestor of many modern hybrids such as red grapefruit, tangelo, and oro blanco. Pomelos have a thick rind and pith that can be separated easily by hand to reveal jewel-like clusters of citrus pulp. Starburst pomelos taste similar to red grapefruit with significantly less bitterness. It has a fragrant citrus aroma and rich sweetness that is excellent on its own or mixed into cocktails or desserts.
Uses: Make a shallow incision in the pomelo rind to expose the pith. Peel the rind with your hands until the center is revealed. Eat the sweet citrus pulp while removing the white pith.
