Mid-Autumn Festival is right around the corner, which means it is finally pomelo season again. Many people think that the larger the fruit, the tastier it will be. This is not always the case, however. If you are looking to enjoy the best pomelos this season, here are a few tips to help you out.
First, you want to choose one that has a large bottom that sits flat on the table. It should have a nice pointed tip and a short neck. This will make sure that the skin is not too thick. Once you have the correct shape, check to see that it is nice and heavy because that means the inside will be juicy. Finally, take a look at the peel of the pomelo. A rich yellow color will show that the fruit is ripe. The skin should also be wrinkled instead of smooth and shiny. This shows that the fruit has absorbed all of the water in the skin, making the inside sweeter. With these tips in mind, you should be able to go to your local fruit stand with confidence.

中秋節即將來臨,這意味著終於又到了柚子(又名文旦)盛產的季節。許多人認為水果越大越好吃。然而,情況並非都是如此。如果你指望享用這個季節最棒的柚子,這裡有一些提示可以幫幫你。
首先,你要選擇一顆底部較寬,可以平放在桌面上的柚子。它應該會是一顆頭尖、頸短的柚子。這樣就表示柚子皮不會太厚。一旦形狀符合標準了,再確認它是夠重的,這表示它內部會非常多汁。最後,再來看看柚子皮。深黃色顯示水果已成熟了。果皮也應該有皺紋而不是既光滑又有光澤。這表示果肉已經吸收了果皮中的所有水分,使內部果肉更甜。牢記這些提示,你應該就可以放心地到當地的水果攤挑選柚子了。
