It would be an unknown, not tested.

I believe it would have the same rating as grapefruit.

Per MoDon's link:

"[A sweetie is]...a new fruit out of Israel.  It's the result of hybridizing a Pomelo and a white grapefruit.  The resulting fruit with a vibrantly green skin when fully ripe, shaped like a grapefruit and just as juicy has the sweetness of a Pomelo."

Interesting...

Quoted from lola

Except for the fact that it's been hybridized. That could change the rating couldn't it?  :)

Well I like sweeties as well- so do my daughter -
none of us have any known bad reactions to it- so I treat it as neutral.
