What Is It Wednesday- Item Five

My husband and I went grocery shopping together last week and one of the stores that we went to was Whole Foods. They had several items on sale that I wanted to pick up, but I also wanted to find some new things to try for my What Is It Wednesday posts.

I knew Whole Foods would be a great place to look for some new and unusual foods. I also knew my husband would be helpful in finding some new things to try, because he is much more adventurous than I am when it comes to food.

We decided to look around the produce section to see if there was anything interesting. My husband found the item pictured above and decided he wanted to give it a try.

Here it is next to an apple. This will give you a better idea of what size it is.

And here is what the inside of it looks like?

Do you know what it is?

  1. a grapefruit. if you REALLY want something delicious buy a ruby red grapefruit, it is absolutely wonderful!

  2. grapefruit – and yes I agree with OP ruby red’s are awesome.

  3. Yep grapefruit. Was going to say a pomelo but it’s not big enough and it has a thin rind pomelos have a much thicker rind.

  4. Looks like a grapefruit to me!

  5. Hmm… I was thinking Pumelo like Ema, but it does seem to be too small. I don’t think it’s a grapefruit, maybe some other sort of Asian citrus?

  6. That’s a marsh grapefruit. Needs lots of sugar sprinkled on it, really good grilled too!

  7. my guess was pummelo as well until I saw it sliced. Grapefruit for sure! And I agree- red is best!

  8. I think it’s a cocktail grapefruit – quite a bit smaller than your average grapefruit, and supposedly a lot sweeter (maybe even as sweet as ruby red?) Hope you like it!

  9. It looks like a Pomelo to me.

  10. Is it an Ugli fruit?

  11. Daniell Powell says:

    I think it is a pumello fruit.

  12. I’m with Erin. It’s a cocktail grapefruit.

  13. bergamot?

  14. AllieZirkle says:

    I first thought Asian pear until I saw it cut 🙂 next thought- pumelo as some do have thinner skin. May e an ugli fruit from the color but the exterior is too waxy and nice to be an ugli fruit lol

  15. Its a Plumello..yummmmm

  16. It’s a grapefruit. I’ve been told that a pink grapefruit is really good as well. They just aren’t my cup of tea I think they taste really bitter. Thanks for getting us to use are brains other then wandering when was the last time I changed the diaper.

  17. that’s a grapefruit and the red ones really are best.

  18. Hi…I think it is a grapefruit…

  19. I think it’s a grapefruit.

  20. I’m going with a white grapefruit

  21. A pomelo? They’re easy to find in the winter here in California and often cheap at Farmer’s Market.

  22. I’m no good at this, but I do believe it’s too yellow to be a grapefruit, as they tend to be more orangey. So, I’ll go with some sort of specialty grapefruit. 🙂

  23. Elizabeth Hults says:

    Cara Cara orange.

  24. It looks like a grapefruit, but I don’t know what type. We have started to brulee our grapefruit. Sprikle course sugar on top and blow torch it like you would creme brulee. Yummy!

  25. from the pale color and thin skin and size it looks like a Marsh Grapefruit

  26. Looks like a pomelo. We used to eat them when we lived in China.

  27. Looks like a white grapefruit to me…..
