Picking the Perfect Pomelo



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.
