Citrus maxima.jpg
  • Citrus maxima, the pomelo (also called pummelo or shaddock) in the Rutaceae (citrus family). It is a medium-sized tree but the largest of all Citrus species, with large leaves, flowers, and fruits.
  • The species is native to southern China and Malaysia (and possibly other parts of southeast Asia), and is now cultivated in many tropical and semi-tropical countries for its large fruits. This species was a progenitor of the grapefruit (C. X paradisi) and the tangelo (C.reticulata), among other modern citrus hybrids. Pomelos are often confused with grapefruits, from which they can generally be distinguished by their larger size, thicker rinds, milder—even sweet—flavor, and tough bitter membranes that are often considered inedible.
  • pomelo (Citrus maxima or Citrus grandis), a citrus fruit native to South East Asia with a considerable quantity of peel waste generated in both Thailand and Malaysia – due to the high domestic consumption and export demand, has recently been considered as a potential source of pectin. It is also worth mentioning that the pomelo albedo (spongy white peel) is accounted for approximately 30% of pomelo fruit weight, thus, being a promising source for pectin extraction.[1][2].
