Is anybody familiar with this grapefruit grown in Indonesia? It is a super big fruit. I would 't mind growing one of them.

"Djeroek" was an old Indonesian spelling prior to World War II, which simply means citrus. Google this: "jeruk bali", you'll get lots of hits. I think it is synonymous to  pummelo... :)
