POMELO

"The Big Citrus"

Season

Pomelo is available from November until May.

History

The word "pomelo" has become the more common name, although "pomelo" has historically been used for grapefruit. 


The etymology of the word "pomelo" is complex. In the Tamil language it is called "pampa limāsu", which means big citrus. The name was adopted by the Portuguese as "pomposos limões" and then by the Dutch as "pompelmoes".


In large parts of South East Asia, it is a popular dessert, often eaten raw sprinkled with, or dipped in, a salt mixture. It is also eaten in salads and drinks.
