The Pomelo is roughly globular to oblate in shape and varies in size and color. Its peel is overwhelmingly thick with a cotton-textured pith. Though the peel is easily removed, it can grow up to five inches deep. The skin is green when young and transforms to a brilliant yellow as it matures.
Every bit of the heavy pith and membrane must be removed to make this giant gem edible. Cut off ends; score skin; peel away pith and rind. Separate segments, pulling or cutting off the membrane. Serve like grapefruit sections.
