A strange, ugly citrus
It’s called Pompia, or in Sardinian “sa Pompia“, is a Sardinian citrus, rare and cultivated in the province of Nuoro, in the gardens of the “Baronia“. Citrus mostruosa, this is the name that botanists have given to this plant, known since 1700, and judging by his appearance seems to be a hybrid between a grapefruit and a cedar. Its flavor is a little sour and a little bitter and is well suited to be used in desserts, such as the “sa Pompia intrea” (Slow Food since 2004) excellent with the sardinian cheese pecorino, and also for the preparation of a liquor increasingly appreciated. So if you find yourself near here do not hesitate to try “sa Pompia“.
