Pomelos always reminds me of my maternal grandparents. They used to have this plant at their backyard and they would always gave us some when the fruits are ripe already. When my Lolo and Lola (that's how we call our grandparents in the Philippines), the pomelo tree also died.

The pomelo (Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis) is a crisp citrus fruit native to South and Southeast Asia. It is usually pale green to yellow when ripe, with sweet white (or, more rarely, pink or red) flesh and very thick albedo (rind pith). Other spellings for pomelo include pummelo, and pommelo, and other names include Jeruk Bali, Chinese grapefruit, jabong, lusho fruit, pompelmous from Tamil pampa limāsu, pompous lemon] and shaddock.
