When I logged back in on Active Rain today, the word that I had to type was "pummelo." If you've ever seen that word and been asked to type it, this is what it is - a large grapefruit-like citrus. It is also sometimes spelled or referred to as pomelo, pommelo, or pamplemousse.
We have had them the size of volleyballs, and the rind is often over a ½" thick.
They are mainly a Far Eastern tree and fruit, but they can be found in Florida and California.
Apparently, many other citrus fruits are hybrids of this basic, original fruit.
