Lime mystery solved! It’s a Pomelo!

Earlier I asked if anyone knew if this fruit was a giant lime…

My husband was able to get in touch with the people who live in the house where he stole the fruit from.  It’s not a lime!  It’s a Pomelo!  Read about the Pomelo!

Apparently it’s believed to be kin of the grapefruit – but sweeter and less acidic.  And definitely edible!

I’m going to taste it and if it’s sweet, I’m going to make a glaze for chicken out of it.  If it’s not sweet, I don’t think it’s ripe so my husband will have to steal one later in the season.  😉
