Oro Blanco Pummelo

Ah, a romantic fruit. The oroblanco’s soft pillowy skin and flowery scent puff little heart clouds and “plinks” of harp strings into the air when you open one. Spanish for “white gold,” the oroblanco is a hybrid of an acidless pomelo and white grapefruit. Oroblancos are bred using traditional cross-pollination methods, not GMO. High in vitamin C, oroblancos are usually chartreuse, green, or pale yellow. The white gold is on the inside. The easy-peel skin and pith are bitter, but the segments are sweet. They sometimes go by the trademarked name “Sweetie.”
