Pomelos from Davao on sale in Manila. Photo by Angie Pastor.
Suha is the Filipino word for the large citrus fruit more commonly known as “pomelo” in English-speaking countries.
It is fairly easy to peel off the thick rind of a local pomelo if you start with using a knife to cut through the outermost skin. And separating the fruit’s wedges is not a very messy affair.
Filipinos eat suha plain or with white rock salt (asin).
Davao on the large island of Mindanao in southern Philippines is known for many fruits, including pomelos.
