The pomelos or suha from the town of Carcar in Cebu have a reputation that precede them. Many folks in Cebu are certain “takuy” is seedless, succulent, sweet and wonderful, and it ONLY thrives in Carcar. I am a HUGE fan of pomelo so I have tried it in dozens of different places from Korea, China, HK, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia and dozens and dozens of sources in the Philippines from the Cagayan Valley to Bicol, the Visayas and Mindanao. So far, I have had takuy 3-4 times and in all cases, they DID NOT impress. A paler variety of pomelo, similar to the ones from China or Bangkok, the ones I have managed to taste are dry, tasteless and yes, somewhat seedless.
I’m not sure what makes these unique to the area around Carcar, but for now, I think I will be sticking to the town’s other specialty, chicharon instead.
