Giant version of the grapefruit. The skin is extremely thick, but the fruit is much sweeter and less acidic than a typical grapefruit. Regarded as a sign of good luck, it often adorns altars and shrines in homes, businesses, and Buddhist temples. Like other sweet fruits, it’s enjoyed with a sprinkle of salt and eaten as a snack.
