pomelo, navel orange


Explanation:
A pomelo is a citrus fruit native to Malaysia, and also called "Chinese grapefruit" (in French "chadec")that looks rather like a large grapefruit (about twice the size of a regular grapefruit), with a yellowish, very thick peel, sometimes tinged with green. It is in sections like a grapefruit, but the sections have a thicker membrane. It has yellow or pink flesh that varies in taste from sweet to tart or slightly dry. In North America it is grown by citrus growers in Florida. It is used much as you would use a grapefruit. I have seen recipes for Thai salads that feature the pomelo.

A navel orange is a seedless juicy eating orange whose blossom end looks like a navel, hence the name. It is available ;ate fall through late spring, so a "late navel orange" would be one harvested in spring, or late in the growing season.

pomelo


Explanation:
pomelo is a variety of grapefruit, I think in English it is actually called 'pomelo', although I've never seen them on sale as such...
