Pomelo is a fruit which looks like a large over grown grape fruit. It’s  pink to yellow sacs have a sweet and sour taste with a hint of bitterness. this is the edible part. It is a tough  job to peel through the thick skin which is majorly inedible… but worth every minute. Scientifically known Citrus maximus.
