A WHAAAAAAAAT? A Pummelo. Yes, you heard me 🙂
Pummelos are the largest of the citrus fruit family. Large in size just like a grapefruit, it is much sweeter and less acidic. These exotic fruits should be firm and feel heavy for their size. As well as other citrus fruits, pummelos are high in Vitamin C, potassium, fiber and folate. Approximately 1/3 of a pummelo contains about 70 calories.
I haven’t seen pummelos in local stores in a long time and I haven’t had one in ages. So you can imagine how surprised (and thrilled) I was to see this sign in Trader Joe’s??
So go ahead, try it if you see it! They are delicious and naturally sweet 🙂
