Our Carters red survived -5.5C last year so they can cope with frost to some extent. First flowers this year.

Comments: - The Flick's Yellow pummelo which we have has very nice fruit so we decided to try the red pummelo variety as well. Has flowered well, but low fruit set and fruit drops off while still small. Suspect inadequate water.
