The pink and rose-colored pulp is slightly sweeter than the yellow pulp. The Limau besar is native to southeast Asia, but is also grown in Caribbean countries and in subtropical areas of the United States. Limau besar are available in well-stocked supermarkets and specialty markets and should be stored in the refrigerator to prolong freshness.
