Nam Roi PumeloBotanical Name: Citrus maxima

A recently imported Pummelo from Vietnam, where it is a very popular seedless variety. Pummelos are similar to grapefruits, but larger and sweeter. Most adaptable citrus to tropical areas. The dwarf rootstock, Flying dragon modifies the top growth making this a dwarf plant that is ideal to use planted out or as a pot specimen.

Question & Answer

Could you please let me know if this variety is cold hardy for growing in Melbourne. Thank you. From:

Pummelo's are the most tropical of the citrus and are not ideally suited to cool climates like Melbourne, you will need a warm, protected position for it to thrive. Or grow it in a pot so you can move it into a sheltered position for the winter months.

24 Sept 2013: Just bought this from Daleys and will be growing in a pot.

Oct 2014: There are about 5 fruits on this tree, and seems to be doing well. It dropped some of its fruit and has only 2 now, It is still a young plant. Did have to treat scale problem, nice new growth on tree (Nov). Fertilised with chook manure, blood and bone and dash of potash next time flowers start to form.
