I have a problem with my daughter's bowel movement because she does not poop regularly. Her pediatrician advised us to feed her fruits that are fibrous such as pomelo. So yesterday, I went to Bankerohan Public Market to look for sweet Chinese pomelo. I was really happy that this time its price is back to its original usual price which is Php30.00 per kilo because during the Kadayawan festival it reached as high as Php80.00 - 100.00 per kilo maybe because of its high demand during that time.
Pomelo is a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia. It is usually pale green to yellow when ripe with sweet white, pink or red flesh and very thick spongy rind. It is the largest citrus fruit.
Davao City is blessed with a nice climate that allows pomelo to grow really sweet. And Bankerohan, being the biggest market in Davao City has plenty of sweet pomelos. And for me, the best variety is the Chinese seedless pomelo - very sweet and juicy.
