Listing #: 542375475
Not a well know citrus in NZ, but really deserves to be planted in more home gardens for its outstandingly huge delicious fruit.

The Pomelo originates from southeast Asia and grows wild in Malaysia.

It has the largest fruit of all citrus. In good growing conditions the fruit can be 30cm wide and weigh over 3kgs when fully ripe.

The rind is thick and hard to peel. Fruit membrane is also best to peel off the flesh. The pink grainy flesh is mildly juicy, sub-acidic, sweet tasting with a hint of a grapefruit flavour. Very refreshing. Fruit keeps well because of its thick peel. Commonly eaten fresh or for juice. 

Some varieties of Pomelo retain a greenish blush in the peel even when fully ripe. 

Citrus Maxima, C. Grandis, Citrus Pomelo, and also spelt as Pummelo. 

Like all citrus varieties, Pomelo likes a warm sheltered sunny spot, organically rich, moisture retentive but good draining soils.

You are bidding on ONE new seasons healthy dwarf Pomelo "Chandler" Citrus tree in a 3lit pot standing aprox 780-80cm tall (from top of pot to top of plant).

These trees are grafted on dwarf Flying Dragon rootstock and will grow to aprox 1.5m tall making them ideal for growing in smaller gardens and large tubs.

Full cultural growing information provided.
