Seriously, you want me to eat that?

Planet or fruit?

Ever eat a Pomelo or Oroblanco? You’d know it if you had because they’re about the size of a small child’s head, and they require quite a bit of peeling before you get to the yummy meat. Not an experience you’d quickly forget.

The other day after a workout Cindy offered me an Oroblanco. At first I was kinda taken back by the size, I imagined it would take me a week to eat so much fruit. But, after Cindy’s detailed instruction on how to dismantle the massive orb I was able to give it a try.

Basically the Oroblanco is sort of like a giant grapefruit, only it’s not nearly as bitter and has fewer seeds.  Don’t let the size frighten you. Once you peel past all the rind, the actual fruit is about the same size as a regular grapefruit. Kinda disappointing after all the work it takes to get there.

In spite of the extra work, I can say first-hand that the Oroblanco was definitely worth the extra effort (thanks Cindy!).

As far as the facts: Half an Oroblanco contains about 100 calories, is full of potassium, vitamin C and fiber. And… I would bet you burn about 100 calories busting into the thing, so… you’ve got a win-win situation on your hands! Serve Oroblanco and Pomelo just like you would any grapefruit.

Next time you see a yellow fruit the size of a head, take a chance and have a try! You’ll want to watch this short, 1-minute video on how to dismantle the sucker though… I’m not kidding!

It’s my hope to inspire “real people” to get off their butts, out of their ruts and on the road to becoming happier, fitter people through Physical Funness.

One thought on “Seriously, you want me to eat that?

  1. Oroblancos are the *best*! They’re a cross between a pomelo and grapefruit, developed at UC Davis. I like to eat them supremed for every last bit of juicy sweetness. Much better than regular grapefruit!
