To good health
Citrus trees are generous this year. Take your local pick—literally—of virtually any variety. One of the most unusual, though, is the pomelo. The pomelo, which looks like a large, soft grapefruit, isn’t quite as juicy as other citrus. It has a thick rind covering the greenish white-to-pink flesh. Pomelos make for a good addition to green salads, although they’re also traditionally eaten for Lunar New Year (February 8 this year). The Cantonese word for pomelo sounds similar to “prosperity,” so the fruit represents abundance and good health in the coming year.
