Flowers profusely but not much fruit set. Suspect competition from nearby trees for moisture. Leaves were pale, so added some Magnesium and new leaves are now a good green colour.

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Fruit Harvest: 1 Fruit Per Year

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

Pest Control:

Spray with Lebaycid to control fruit fly. Not a serious problem but some spoilage can occur.

Trying this plant as companion to the yellow pummelo which we found to be very tasty. Leaves were rather pale so added Epsom salt for Magnesium, but this caused leaf fall. However, new leaves are now emerging and are a good green colour.

pummelo (Seedling) 5/10

Binwa's Edible Fruits
Update: 1069 days 4hrs

Comments: - This is one of the citrus fruits with the finest taste

Planted: 2006

Height 1 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Sun/Shade: Low Sun

Water Given in: Spring

Pollination: No

When I Fertilise: Never

Organic Status:Certified

Question: Every three to four months, my 2 pomelo trees get new leaves. But after a few weeks, leaves become clearer green, some weeks later, they start to get white to yellow spots that are enlarging until the leaf becomes mostly white. At that moment, it starts to dry out, getting wholes in the leaf, until it is completely dried out and falls off. 

Is this an illness, or do I give too much water, or is the soil PH not correct ? I do not know and do not know what to do to save the 5 year old plants. 

These two trees were planted 5 years ago, and they reach about 1 metre, but I presume this should be more. 

Many thanks in advance for your advice.
