PUMMELO TREE - NAM ROI
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. Grows very well in subtropical climates too.

Flowers profusely but not much fruit set. Suspect competition from nearby trees for moisture. I have therefore movwill ed it to a new location after a good pruning. However, the tree has died back and was removed.

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