I had never heard of this fruit before this weekend. They had them at 2 for $5 at the store and it looked and smelled like a grapefruit so Jeff and I decided to give it a try.
Here (http://www.elibydesign.com/wellness/htmls/foodgroup/fruits/pummelo.html) is a link to it's nutrition info. I have to tell you it was very delicious. I ate half and saved the other half for Jeff. It had a lot more of the white stuff than grapefruits and oranges and it was tough to eat but once I got into the meat of it. Yummy. It was sweeter than a grapefruit, not as sweet as an orange. It was a lot meatier too and felt like it had a ton of substance. Just thought I'd let y'all know about it. I don't know that we'll be able to find more in the stores around here since I'm lucky if I find green leaf or red leaf lettuce. :)
