What is Pomelo?

A pomelo is a large citrus fruit related to the grapefruit. It can grow up to 30 cm. Pomelos are also called Chinese grapefruit.

Where do Pomelos come from?

Pomelos originally come from Thailand and Malaysia. They grow on trees that can reach a height of 15 metres. Our pomelos come from China, Vietnam, Israel, South Africa and Thailand.

How do you store Pomelos?

Before selling, Pomelos must be stored at 6 to 8°C and at a relative humidity (RH) of 90%.

We recommend that consumers store pomelos in a cool place, outside the refrigerator. Pomelos stay fresh for several weeks, but they will become less juicy. A sliced pomelo or just the flesh can be stored in cling film in the refrigerator for a few days.

How do you eat Pomelo?

Pomelos are eaten fresh. The flesh can be eaten as is, but is also delicious in salads, desserts, smoothies and juices.
