Coming up to the Chinese New Year:

Malaysian pomelo grower predicts shortage

Go Chin Pomelo Nature Park owner Chin Too Kam warns consumers to be aware of a possible pomelo shortage for the coming holidays. “Now is the time to buy pomelo as the fruit can be kept for up to one month, so until the Chinese New Year,” he said

Pomelo lovers who prefer the sweet-and-sour variety are advised to act fast. This variety only forms some 10 percent of current supplies heading into the peak Chinese New Year period next month.

Speaking to the Malay Mail, Chin added that health-conscious consumers nowadays prefer the sweet-and-sour variant due to its lower sugar content. “I do not want to end up disappointing my customers. If any of them want the sweet-and-sour fruit, I advised them to come to my farm to get it,” he said.
