Can Guinea Pigs Eat Pomelos?

Before we get into our review, we'd like to give a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Years to all our readers. The humans have been pretty busy with holiday stuff and feeding Buffy her meds and Critical Care, so they haven't been fetching us new stuff to review nearly as often as we would have liked. Today, we had to wheek our insistence that today's the day we finally review something new. As it turned out, this worked and we got ourselves a new fruit. Looks like 2016 is off to a good start!

Today, we're going to review pomelos (AKA shaddock, pummelo, etc.). Pomelos are a really big citrus fruit. How big, you ask? So big that people have made hats out of them.
That's a big fruit!
You might be thinking that pomelos look similar to grapefruits. As it turns out, there's a really good reason for that. Grapefruits are actually hybrids between pomelos and oranges. We'd advise feeding pomelos in the same amount and frequency as grapefruit: only give part of a section to each pig occasionally as a treat. Only feed us the flesh, not the peel, and be sure that there are no seeds in the parts you give us.

Tastes like grapefruit without the bitterness.
You've been sick lately, so I won't try to steal any from you. Go ahead.
Pomelos are sweet, juicy, and really tasty. Therefore, they get 5/5 stars!


  1. It is wonderful to see Buffy tucking in. Thank you for sharing so nicely, Broccoli.

    Happy New Year to you both.

    1. Thank you. Buffy is doing pretty well for the moment, especially considering how dire the diagnosis sounded.

  2. You just introduced me to a new blog with the pomelo hat link :)
