Red Pomelo

When we went grocery shopping the other day, I saw a red pomelo in the fruit aisle. I was excited and surprise to see it so, I decided to buy one to try it. Well, Andrea loves it! I am just so glad that my daughter loves most fruit.

Back at home in Philippines, pomelo is very common in the neighborhood. Although we don't have a pomelo tree, our neighbor has a few so when we wanted one, all we need to do is ask for it.

There are three varieties of pomelo: white, pink and red. Not surprisingly, the pink and red varieties are sweeter than the white which has a slightly acidic taste.

It has a very thick peel and yellow, pink or red pulp. The pomelo, also known as the shaddock, is often confused with the grapefruit. It is sweeter and much less acidic than regular grapefruit.

The pomelo is an excellent source of vitamin C but provides little energy. It also contains potassium and folic acid. The nutritional value varies according to the colour.
