Pomelo (som-o) The Siamese pomelo was well known in the native country of the ethnic Chinese in Thailand decades ago.
In fact, that was about the only Thai fruit known to their relatives at home. Although that was partly because the pomelo is more durable than most other fruits and can endure a long sea voyage without perishing, it is an undeniable fact that the Thai pomelo has earned fame for its country for long.
The fruit is easier eaten than peeled. But the good taste is certainly more than worth the effort. Anyway, the vendor can do the job for you free of charge. Season: August to October.
