Chinese / Japanese Pomelo Pummelo plants / cuttings

    4 responses

mcmelb1 starts with ...
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any cuttings or plants of Chinese/Japanese Pomelo cultivars they are willing to swap or sell? I am also interested in cuttings from trees grown from seeds of Chinese/Japanese cultivars since i think actual cultivars may be hard to come by here.

Hi McMelb

I have come across an interesting story about a 100 years old pomelo tree at the back garden of The Bendigo Museum in Vic that still bears fruit I believe to this day. I'm pretty sure Bendigo temperature is as cold as Melbourne. That shaddock was brought by Chinese immigrants during the gold rush era. If you can get some budwood and graft it to an orange, lemon, trifoliata, flying dragon etc then you can have an original Chinese cold tolerant pomelo grown and bred in Victoria. Give the Museum a ring to confirm my findings.

As Always....Happy gardening :-)

I have 4 Pomelo trees. One is a Mato Buntan which is a Japanese/Taiwanese variety. I grew it from seed 3 years ago and it’s yet to fruit. If you are in the Brisbane area you are welcome to some bud wood.

I also have a Chinese Ponkan mandarin.

Cheers.

Cheers Scott!
I actually have a friend studying in Brisbane at the moment, so i may actually take you up on that offer! I'll probably wait until spring comes around again though.

Cheers

Hi Scott,
I will be in Brisbane early next year and would like to buy / trade for some Mato Buntan cuttings if you still have the plants
Cheers
