Produce Pick: Pummelo (aka Pumelo, Pomelo)

Posted by 8 years ago 14 Comments

It’s been too long since we’ve done a video and even longer since we’ve done a produce pick. This week we try the pummelo.. with some friends. :)

As I say in the video, we researched a bit and watched this video about how to peel one. We may not have done it perfectly but it was all we needed to get started!

Any pummelo fans out there? How do you peel it? Do you eat it straight up or use it in recipes? Any uses for all that rind??

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I spotted these in the store awhile back and was curious but didn't buy. Do you remember the cost of the pummelo? Also, I thought of you today when my daughter called to say that Aldi was having great deals on produce this week!

    I'm pretty sure they were 10 for $10. So a buck. I think they are in season right now.

    Thanks Roni. That price seems reasonable to give them a try. I remember pricing the pomegranate after you posted that video and and they were about double that price.

    I've been dying to try one of those but I can't find them right now in Cleveland! :( LOVE that top Roni - so cute - is it newer/still in stores?? :)

    I really like pummelos--I enjoy the taste between an orange and a grapefruit. I usually dig one of my nails or a spoon into the side and peel like an orange. I love putting these in my lunch because they are so big that I feel like I'm getting a real treat! I bet they would be good in a trifle (instead of grapefruit), but I've never tried anything but eating them by themselves.

    how fun! i've never tried pummelo; will have to add it to the 'to try' list. i love trying new produce items. last week i tried parsnips and rutabaga. loved the parsnips!

    i've eaten pummelo a couple times at work (still don't know where to get them, but 1 of my coworkers brings them). apparently, we do it wrong...but, we cut it in half (like a grapefruit), then cut off the rind, then peel out or use a fork to get the segments. it basically is like a pink grapefruit, but even sweeter :-)

    Pith? Rind, pith, then fruit? Not sure, but I wanna try the pummelo too. I love grapefruit, i should love this too. :)

    I love them! I eat them often although they are time consuming to peel. I cut it in half then peel the rind off. I think the skin is bitter so I peel that off too. I end up with strictly the fruit, like grapefruit segments.

    I lived in Israel for 9 months and they had pummelos there for very cheap! I loved them! You just peel it like you would an orange. My friends and I would just eat them straight. They're juicy, sweet and filling. Yum...

    Does anyone know where I could buy fresh Pumelos online or maybe by mail? I miss eating Pumelo, grew up in Hawaii where Pumelo were readily available. Please tell me where I could buy them by mail or online. Thank you.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
