What Is Jabong Fruit?


WHAT IS JABONG FRUIT?





Jabong fruit, as it is called in Hawaii, is an aromatic citrus fruit that also goes by the name of pomelo. It is native to Southeast Asia and is in season from fall to spring.

Although it looks like a very large grapefruit jabong fruit offers the sweetness of orange. It is delicious enjoyed fresh but can be a great addition to salads, seafood dishes and desserts.

The tricky part of jabong fruit is that it has a very thick skin. It may be removed by scoring the fruit and peeling it like a banana. All that remains is removing the pith (the bitter white part) with a knife and separating the pomelo into segments, as illustrated in this helpful video from FeastingInTheKnow:
