How to Peel a Pummelo

 

Here are step by step directions on how I peel a pummelo.  The one demostrated is a Chandler pummelo.  This one came off my tree.  There are many good pummelo varieties such as the red Chandler, and the white Sarawak, Siam, Tahitian, AZ, and the pink Hirado Buntan pummelo.
