'Pink' is a variety that started as a seedling in South Africa in 1920, then was selected for further studying by Mr.L. von Broembsen in 1970 and one of the people who helped with its distribution was also Mr. F. Esselen from the eastern Transvaal. 'Pink' is sometimes referred to as shaddock.
It's a large tree, both high and wide with rather big (11-15cm in diameter), egg or pear-shaped fruit that has dark yellow, smooth rind full of essential oils. The pulp is usually amber yellow with pinkish touch and is very soft, juicy, sweet and tasty. It's divided into 16-22 segments with lots of seeds, when the plant is pollinated by other shaddock. Otherwise it is completely seedless. The rind goes easily off of the pulp, but for its big proportions, this variety is almost never exported.
