Ipoh Tambun Pomelo

I don't really like about Ipoh Tambun Pomelo...
Last time I used to stay with my grandparents when I was younger...
In his house garden was planted a pomelo tree....
It bears fruit all the time... I am not sure whether is sweet or sour....
What I still remembered, I use to pick the pamelo and use is a football and kick around in the garden...
My mum always take the pomelo leaves for prayers...
and normally she will put few leaves in the bath tub for bathing..
it could remove all the bad luck .....

My wife and her family love to eat pomelo..
When my dad was younger he stayed at Tambun, Ipoh...
He got a few friends that run a pamelo farm......
We normally go to their pomelo farm .. and buy directly from the owner.....

some pomelo tress just incase you never see it before..

They will harvest the pamelo and send in this stall...

The size is much bigger and juicier...

  20. Here, we have honey pomelo - very juicy and sweet. Not very big though...and the best ones would be the old and wrinkled ones. Never judge a book by its cover.
