Red Globe pomelos are a medium to large citrus, averaging 12 to 20 centimeters in diameter. This variety is one of the smaller pomelo hybrids, comparable to the size of some grapefruits. The rind ranges in color from yellow-green, golden yellow, to yellow-orange. The coloring of the flesh widely varies, and can appear pale, faintly blushed with red-pink hues, or it can be saturated with ruby red pigments. The flesh is comprised of vesicles containing juice and pulp, giving the fruits a moderately succulent, soft, and tender nature. Red Globe pomelos contain low acidity, creating a primarily sweet, sugary, and floral flavor with a tart, berry-like aftertaste.
