Pommelo Large Citrus Fruit Health Tips

Pomelo GrapefruitThe pomelo, (Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis), is a citrus fruit native to South East Asia. It is usually pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white or pink / flesh and very thick spongy rind. Just to give you an idea the Pommelos below are as big as a serving plate, 6"x8", and the skin is atleast one inch in thickness. Other names for pomelo include pummelo, pommelo, Chinese grapefruit, jabong, lusho fruit, pompelmous, and shaddock.

As we get older we are looking to eat healthier and finding that our bodies can’t handle much fatty foods anymore. Fruits are on our menu every day because it is a must have. Look at the nutrition facts above, it is zero everything, no bad stuff, but no protein either. When you're talking about protein it is questionable whether some of us should be taking in any or not, but now you know why the Pommelo fruit would be so good for someone watching their body fat. Like all fruits, you might run into some that are not so sweet, or delicous as they should be, but I have always had good luck with these Pommelo.

We still indulge in fatty foods more often then we should, especially the ones that raise your calories to sky high levels. We are very easy on ourselves when it comes to seafood and believe we should live with some fun too. Now you should know I can’t say no to Sautéed Dungeness crab, nor am I able to resist raw oysters on a Friday Vent Night. In addition, I always say, it’s ok because I like herbs and they are my combat against unhealthy food.

  3. oh, i am easy on myself too, the more i restrict myself with diet, the unsatisfied i become, and if i am unsatisfied with my meal i am irritable. however, i do eat a lot of fruits and vegetables everyday, however, whenever i crave for something, i go for it, and just tell myself, "hey, i deserve this, i eat a lot of good stuff everyday". i love pomelo, and i am one of those who can eat any vegetable and fruit without hesitation, i am not limited to a few only :)

  8. @luna mirandaYou're so lucky, I love when it's peeled and ready for me too. Not really, I kind of like to labor for my food. Silly, but true.

  11. @Poetic ShutterbugRemeber to be picky when picking these Pommelos. They could set a tone for a long time, like Icy.

  12. @Icy BCDo you know how to pick Pommelos Icy? If you don't, let me know, I could at least give you a few things I always try to stick by when making a choice.

  14. I tasted pommelo for the first time this year and loved them. I've had more since then and have written an article about them too. Because they are related to the grapefruit I do wonder if they effect cholesterol medication adversely.

  17. I love pommelos and had my first on a visit to Thailand and a southeast Asian cruise. Also, on that Bangkok trip, I ate the best fruit I've ever encountered - the mangosteen. I even did a blog post about this incredible fruit!
